Château Rabaud-Promis Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1988

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

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. Tempting now; better in 1998. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Rabaud-Promis 750ml
