Château Rabaud-Promis 2008 – Sauternes, Premier Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, elegant, and offers a beautiful aromatic palette. It reveals notes of quince, honey and small notes of candied tangerine associated with touches of kumquat, almond, racy minerality, small touches of vine peach, fresh almond as well as a discreet hint of mango and vanilla (in the background). The palate is fruity, elegant and offers a beautiful freshness, a beautiful minerality (racy minerality), precision, finesse, dynamism / straightness as well as a richness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of quince, candied lemon and small notes of crystalline tangerine associated with small touches of pineapple in syrup, mango, lychee as well as hints of white flowers, verbena, honey, almond and a very discreet hint of vanilla. The finish / persistence is slightly acidulous. Beautiful persistence, good precision and richness. A beautiful wine!
