WE 95
Wine Enthusiast, May 2014
(WE93-95 points) A rich, complete wine, this has beautiful acidity as well as the most intense botrytis character. It's a wine with long-term aging potential, ripe and already full in the mouth.

Give it a few more minutes in the glass, and these are overtaken by mineral scents. The palate is supremely well-balanced with good depth. The acidity is well-judged and, returning after ten minutes, one finds greater tension and complexity on the finish. Perhaps keeping a few tricks up its sleeve, this is one to watch out for after bottling. - Neal Martin collapse

Vinous, May 2014
(IWC92-94 points) Bright, pale yellow-gold. Reticent but extremely pure, floral aromas of fresh tropical fruit salad, sweet spices and vanilla, lifted by mineral and lemony botrytis nuances.

Reticent but extremely pure, floral aromas of fresh tropical fruit salad, sweet spices and vanilla, lifted by mineral and lemony botrytis nuances. Wonderfully honeyed, pristine tropical and fresh citrus fruit flavors are complemented by clove and nutmeg. Harmonious acidity lifts and extends the wine's fruit flavors at the back. The 2013 vintage really plays to this estate's strengths, as Sigalas Rabaud is always a refined, graceful Sauternes. Superb potential here. - Ian D'Agata collapse

Wine Spectator, April 2014
(WS90-93 points) Very bright and engaging, with a range of green almond, glazed pear, creamed yellow apple and apricot notes all stretching out nicely already. Flecks of ginger, toasted peach and guava fill in the finish... expand (WS90-93 points) Very bright and engaging, with a range of green almond, glazed pear, creamed yellow apple and apricot notes all stretching out nicely already.

A Sauternes with a pretty density and richness that remains compressed and structured. Full body, very sweet and a flavorful finish. Lots of botrytis spice. Give it a year or two to come together.
