Wine Advocate-Parker : Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. This bottle of Rabaud Promis is better than the one I encountered last year during the vertical at the property. Here, it has an attractive, Aszu-like bouquet with touches of fresh apricot, almond and hints of marmalade that unfold in the glass. Here, there is better delineation than previous bottles. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh quince on the entry. This demonstrates much better balance and focus than its peers with a delightful citrus freshness on the marmalade-tinged finish. Tasted April 2013.
