A distinctive and beautifully balanced Sauternes

A Premier Grand Cru Classe de Sauternes, Chateau Rabaud-Promis produces magnificent sweet wines that express all of the typical of the Sauternes appellation.

Located in the south of Bordeaux, the Chateau Rabaud-Promis estate expands over a 40 hectares of vineyards planted in sandy-clay soils, with Pyrenean gravel covering the surface. The vines are cultivated with the utmost respect for the environment, by means of a reasoned viticulture.

Product of a great vintage, the Chateau Rabaud Promis 2018 has joined the ranks of Sauternes’s greatest. In its youth, this vintage is distinguished by its complex bouquet, exuding notes of pastry, and a palate that seduces with its well-balanced texture and depth. The wine ends on a lingering finish. A beautiful reference of Sauternes from an exceptional vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Rabaud-Promis reveals compelling notes of lemon tart, spice cake, orange blossoms and ginger ale with nuances of lime leaves and honeycomb. The palate is completely coated with spiced citrus layers with a pleasant oiliness to the texture and a savory finish.
