With its balanced acidity and dried fruit flavors, it's ripe, gorgeous and developing well, if slowly. This will be a great wine, but wait until 2024 to open it.

The 2014 Sigalas Rabaud has a detailed bouquet with pure honey, flint and quince aromas, precise and very well focused.

The 2014 Sigalas Rabaud has a detailed bouquet with pure honey, flint and quince aromas, precise and very well focused. The palate is well balanced with a fresh entry, crisp acidity, notes of tangerine and marmalade furnishing the vibrant and spicy finish. Every now and again this property pulls a great Sauternes out of the bag. The 2014 is one of them. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, March 2017
Tropical in feel, with mango and guava notes holding sway, backed by hints of nectarine, tangerine and bitter almond. The long, piecrust- and coconut-framed finish rolls through languidly. Best from 2018 through 2033... Tropical in feel, with mango and guava notes holding sway, backed by hints of nectarine, tangerine and bitter almond. The long, piecrust- and coconut-framed finish rolls through languidly. Best from 2018 through 2033. 1,052 cases made. — JM

Fat, juicy, ripe and over ripe fruits, vanilla bean and honey work together to create a delicious, sweet, experience. It's not just all the sugar, it's the shot of acidity on the palate that finishes the puzzle. Read...

(92+ points) Pale lemon in color, the 2014 Sigalas has a wonderfully exotic, tropical fruit scented nose with nuances of honeycomb, fresh ginger, allspice and a touch of lime blossoms. The rich, boldly fruited palate has a zippy line of freshness lifting layer upon layer of pineapple and guava inspired flavors, finishing on a long lingering spicy note.- LPB

Full-throttle mango brulée on the nose and palate, and there’s a good amount of botrytis richness. Tangy and beautiful. Solid intensity.

Delicate saffron, lemon verbena, juniper and yellow apple aromas mingle with lemony botrytis. Fresh and juicy, with lifted fresh citrus and spicy stone fruit flavors. Doesn’t seem sweet at all but finishes long with... Delicate saffron, lemon verbena, juniper and yellow apple aromas mingle with lemony botrytis. Fresh and juicy, with lifted fresh citrus and spicy stone fruit flavors. Doesn’t seem sweet at all but finishes long with building sweetness and intriguing notes of crystallised ginger. Outstanding example of lighter-styled Sauternes. Read more at https://www.decanter.com/wine-reviews/france/bordeaux/chateau-sigalas-rabaud-sauternes-1er-cru-classe-2014-19311#gtyIWvduzHY7wGLs.99
