Tasting Notes

The Sigalas Rabaud has an intriguing bouquet of candied orange peel, almond and popcorn scents that are already alluring. 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, Wine Advocate (212), April 2014

Pale lemon colored, the 2013 Sigalas Rabaud has a drop dead gorgeous nose of candied ginger, nutmeg and orange blossoms with and apple and pears core plus a waft of acacia honey. The palate is rich, perfumed and sparked with bags of spices, featuring great freshness and finishing long.
