Product Description

The 2009 Chateau Sigalas Rabaud Sauternes is an elegant golden yellow with a seductive nose of candied lemon and honey. After a sweet and soft attack, the mouthfeel is ethereal. The finish concludes with a fine acidity that gives balance and length. Absolutely delicious!

Varietal Composition: 94 Semillon, 6 Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation: Sauternes 1er Cru AOC
Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"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." -NM, 2/27/13

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"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." -RV, 2/1/13

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"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. 1,500 cases made." -JM, 3/31/12
