Château Rabaud-Promis is a premier cru property producing sweet/dessert wines in the appellation of Sauternes. It consists of 33 hectares of vineyrads in the commune of Bommes. Philippe Déjean's appointment as manager in 1974 led to a recrudescence of this estates fortunes having hitherto been under-performing. With improved vineyard techniques, lower yields and the introduction of more rigorous selection at harvest time. The wine is usually a blend of 80% Sémillon, 18% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle grapes and it is aged in oak barrels, a thirf od which are new, for a period of 15 months before bottling.

According to Neal Martin writing for, this wine has now reached the beginning of its drinking window and it will continue to drink well until at least 2030. In 2015 he wrote:
Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Rabaud-Promis has a light candied bouquet, timid at first with honey, vanilla pod and a touch of tinned apricot. It is a delicate thing. The palate is fresh and tensile on the entry with fine tannin, good tension with a vibrant finish..

A very nice half-bottle for diner a deux.
