91-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May 2010

(80% semillon and 20% sauvignon; 13.7% alcohol; 138 g/l residual sugar)) Medium-deep, saturated orange-gold. Vibrant aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit, rose water and ripe cantaloupe, with plenty of botrytis character. Enters the mouth juicy and fresh, displaying great depth to its pure flavors of orange, peach, tea leaf, cantaloupe and oatmeal. Very sweet, but with balancing acidity that is positively exhilarating. Finishes with lovely lingering smoky perfume. This is by far the best young Rabaud-Promis I recall tasting.
