The Sigalas Rabaud was sensational out of barrel and served blind, the wine does nothing to dispel my initial optimism that this is the apogee for the estate – so far.

The Sigalas Rabaud was sensational out of barrel and served blind, the wine does nothing to dispel my initial optimism that this is the apogee for the estate – so far. It is bestowed with an intense bouquet of quince, orange zest and almond with a lighter touch of honey compared to its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with great viscosity. This is an assertive Sauternes that wants to make an impression, although it does not display the complexity or breeding of Yquem and Suduiraut. Still, it is very composed and perhaps is saving something up for later, biding its time as it were. This is a wondrous wine. Drink now-2040. - Neal Martin

This wine is still very closed. That said its promise is in the rich weighty texture. It shows a ripe feel with orange and lemon freshness. On the finish the acidity is dominant.

Very suave. Sémillon...

Long, lingering finish. Solid, especially for the price, but needs a few more years to really hit the big time - this could surprise as it unwinds with more time in bottle.
