2018 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 91

Sweet, honeyed Meyer lemon, candied orange rind, pineapple and floral notes. Medium bodied, round and sweet, with a nice spicy touch in the finish. You can enjoy this on release. Also, it should be noted that the special bottle used is absolutely gorgeous. 91 Points

2017 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 93

Perfectly balanced between honeyed, tropical fruits, candied citrus rind and fresh, racy acidity. Freshness, sweetness, length and pleasure all wrapped up quite nicely. Drink now, or wait a decade. 93 Points

2016 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 91

On the candied orange and honeyed tangerine side of the style range, this is a bright, fresh, floral, spicy, sweet wine with a touch of vanilla bean, pineapple and apricot in the finish. The wine is precocious. So if you like your sweets on the young side, this is for you. 91 Points

2015 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 90

Medium-bodied, forward, early-drinking, fresh, light, orange, apricot, honey, vanilla and floral-scented wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with savory courses, due to its food-friendly style. 90 Points

2013 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 90

On the orange, apricot and sweet, candied citrus side of the style range, there is a tangy, bright, crisp, sweetness to the honeyed fruit here. Personally, while this is a good wine, I prefer the fruit that hits the tropical side, but others that love a hit of marmalade with like this even more than I did. 90 Points

2011 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 93

Nice vintage for Rabaud Promis here starting with its apricot, pineapple, orange, green apple and floral nose. Concentrated, sweet, but not overblown, due to the refreshing jolt of acidity, the finish is all about the apricot custard sensation. This is so good now, and it's going to be even better with a decade or so of bottle age. 93 Points

2010 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 90

Sweet, citrus peel, complicated by honeyed Meyer lemon, candied orange, pineapple and floral notes. Medium bodied, fresh and vibrant, a few more years should add to the apricot, orange, tropical fruit and honey finish. 90 Points

2009 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 92

With a nose that sings with its honey coated, tropical fruits, coconut, apricot, orange, floral and vanilla perfume, the wine is exactly what the doctor ordered. Sweet, lush, fat, spicy and fresh in character, the wine ends with fresh, juicy pineapple and honey. 92 Points

2007 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 92

Pineapple soaked in honey, with nuts, apricot, orange rind and floral scents, rich opulent textures and a long, sweet, tropical, pear and honeyed, fresh finish are found in this delicious Sauternes. 92 Points

2005 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 89

On the fresh, bright, floral side of the style range, with a lean to orange and apricots over tropical notes, there is plenty of honey drizzled on the fruit. But it lacks the weight and density you find in the better wines from the vintage. 89 Points

2003 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 90

A nice Sauternes, but lacking the concentration found in many wines from the vintage. There is ample apricot, orange rind, pineapple and honey in the nose and on the palate. 90 Points

2001 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 90

Lots of honeyed apricots, pineapple, coconut and poached pears are in the nose and sweet finish. Not the most concentrated wine, but it's contender for one of the best values in sweet wine from the now legendary 2001 vintage. And with a decade of bottle age under its belt, this is drinking great today. 90 Points

1989 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 90

An orphan bottle found in my cellar was a nice discovery. Fully mature, with caramel, butterscotch, orange, spice and honeyed tropical notes. There is freshness and a nice mix of secondary sensations, coupled with sweet, tropical notes. I suspect there is no reason to age this any longer. 90 Points

1947 Château Rabaud-Promis  (Sauternes) 88

Deep caramel in color, with some sweet, honeyed pineapple, orange and apricot remaining, along with stronger sensations of secondary notes or caramel, butterscotch and spice. 88 Points
