Reviews for 2011 Rabaud-Promis Sauternes Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Still quite youthful with a light yeasty edge that needs to be absorbed but there's unctuous apricot orange peel fig date and persimmon notes and a long dried tangerine-filled finish. Backward but the pieces are there.-J.M.

Sweet juicy and very clean in the mouth with bright pear apricot and saffron flavors. Finishes bright and long with lingering coconut and vanilla nuances. This should be a very good Rabaud-Promis.

Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. Noticeably deeper in color, the Château Rabaud-Promis 2011 has a petrol-like bouquet that has a very Germanic, Beerenauslese-like set of aromatics that feel a little out of place among these Sauternes. The palate is better: focused and with a fine sense of energy, with rich and mellifluous texture. There is a palpable sense of mineralité and tension here, penetrating acidity with plenty of frisson on the mellifluous finish. Primal compared to others, but this offers immense potential. - Neal Martin

A Sauternes with wonderful intensity and sweetness, featuring spicy, dried-pineapple and honey character. Full and flavorful. Goes on for minutes. Crazy. Drink or hold.

80% semillon 20% sauvignon blanc. Barrel fermented then aged in oak with 66% new. Light green gold color. Displays ripe tropical notes underscored by white orchard fruit.

Displays ripe tropical notes underscored by white orchard fruit. This is clean and fresh with lots of lively acidity keeping it light and focused. Medium in body with moderate sweetness. Developing nicely but not yet fully integrated at this point. Enjoy over the next 10-15 years.
