Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 93

The Rabaud-Promis has a lovely bouquet with hints of dried honey, nutmeg and crème brûlée blossoming in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening: a surfeit of botrytis here that vibrant mandarin and dried pineapple notes. There is a great sense of cohesion to this Rabaud-Promis with a long tail of spicy fruit on the finish. This is consistent with my tasting at the property in April 2012. Superb. [10/01/2014]

Vinous 93+

Pale orange-gold color. Orange peel, apricot, white raisin and spicy oak on the nose. Unctuous, superripe and exotic, with hugely sweet flavors of apricot and caramel. Full, fat and extremely long, but still a bit youthfully closed and firm-edged. This is less fine than the 2002 but much more massive. [Stephen Tanzer, 01/07/2004]
