Chateau Rabaud-Promis – First Growth Sauternes
Bill Blatch: Here is another example of a traditionally brighter-styled wine which always has more acidity matching up with a similarly-styled vintage. This has great definition and purety and in my opinion is the best of the decade for the château. Real concentration, a nifty botrytis style, and a long, high tone of pure white fruit.
