CHATEAU RABAUD PROMIS
Located in Sauternes, this estate was known as the 'field of Rabaud' in the 17th Century, in reference to early owners, the Rabaud family. Today, the Déjean family own and manage the property.
Rabaud-Promis had fallen into a somewhat dilapidated state by 1972, when Philippe and Michèle Déjean started working there. The wine did not see any new oak and was aged in concrete vats. Once the Déjeans took over, they began a slow but steady renovation of the winemaking facilities, cellars and the vineyards, which helped to improve the wine and restore the estate's reputation.
The 33-hectare vineyard is planted in 80% Semillon, 18% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle. On average the vines are close to 40 years of age. The wines are rich, with layers of flavours, and capable of aging gracefully for many years.
