The 1988 remains the most classic of the 1988 1989 and 1990 vintages. It possesses great richness sweetness and unctuous texture as well as higher acidity plenty of botrytis a wonderful rich honeyed pineapple coconut and orange-scented nose gobs of rich fruit and excellent delineation. Approachable now it promises to age effortlessly for 25-30 years. At one time Rabaud-Promis was among the most notorious underachievers of Barsac/Sauternes. That all changed in 1986. The 1988 1989 and 1990 vintages offer formidable evidence that Rabaud-Promis is exhibiting more consistency in quality than many of its more renowned neighbors.

Wine Spectator, April 1995
Elegant and full-bodied exhibiting a burst of botrytis character impressive structure and spicy dried apricot honey caramel and lemon flavors and a long finish. Tempting now; better in 1998.
