Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2013
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...   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

Medium gold. There are lively stone fruit aromas on the nose, with a touch of oak, and it’s delightfully perky and stylish. There’s bright acidity to lift the palate, which is silky and vigorous.

There’s bright acidity to lift the palate, which is silky and vigorous. This is a well-balanced Sauternes, with a long, fresh finish and a clarity of fruit that’s typical of Sigalas.

What a beauty! Honey coated tropical fruits, orange, apricot and vanilla custard are there to inform you this is one sweet, white Bordeaux treat.

Honey coated tropical fruits, orange, apricot and vanilla custard are there to inform you this is one sweet, white Bordeaux treat. There is the right amount of freshness waking your palate, giving the wine lift and leaving you with sweet, spicy, honeyed fruits in the finish. This will should age quite nicely.

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.

Dense with powerful aromas and flavors of dried mushroom, spices and pineapple. Medium sweet. Full body yet racy and fresh due to intense acidity. Medium finish. Drink or hold.

Lush but defined with a lovely floral and green tea frame to the dried pineapple quince pear and yellow apple fruit flavors which are seamless through the long lightly toasted coconut-tinged finish. Very suave. Sémillon...   Lush but defined with a lovely floral and green tea frame to the dried pineapple quince pear and yellow apple fruit flavors which are seamless through the long lightly toasted coconut-tinged finish. Very suave. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Best from 2014 through 2025. -JM
