Château Sigalas Rabaud 2016
Château Sigalas Rabaud es un Sauternes muy conocido y valorado por su finura. Sus viñas viejas, cultivadas principalmente con la variedad Semillón, crecen a menos de 500 metros de las del mítico Château D´Yquem. Denso, dulce y envolvente.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2016 Château Sigalas-Rabaud felt a little straightforward on the nose, floral but just missing the depth and concentration of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with tangerine and clementine on the entry, a tang of lemongrass towards the finish that perks things up and suggests that there is better to come once this Sauternes is in bottle.
Pretty density to this young sweet wine with cooked apples, pears and spices. Medium to full body and a clean finish. Wait and see how it evolves.
A beautifully light gold colour, not in any way heavy, which carries over to the palate. That, for me, shows what Sauternes should be doing: offering the reward of sweetness without the threat of it. It just delivers its luxurious exotic fruits and spices without ever straying towards being cloying. This is a property to watch, with the new, lighter No. 5 de Sigalas also breaking new ground.
