    Chateau Rabaud Promis 1988
    Sauternes
    2bn, 3lscl, 1spc, 5 dark-honey color, 1 light amber color
    Bottle (6)


    "The 1988 possesses great richness, sweetness, and unctuous texture, as well as high 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." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed. , Jan. 1998)

    "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." (93 pts. Wine Spectator, Apr. 1995)
