2008 Sigalas Rabaud

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 90.5 points



The Sigalas-Rabaud has a very intense nose of orange zest, lime flower and marmalade, with good definition, but is perhaps a little obvious compared to some of the other 2008 Sauternes. The palate is well-balanced, with layers of pure honeyed fruit interlaced by orange rind and a touch of spice, fanning out beautifully across the back palate. This is an ambitious 2008 with good cellaring potential. Drink now-2030. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate May 2011



Tasted single blind against its peers. The Sigalas-Rabaud 2008 has a very intense bouquet with alluring scents of dried honey, orange zest and custard creams that is nicely integrated with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely, viscous, fresh entry. There is impressive weight in the mouth that leads to a harmonious citrus finish that marries beautifully with tangy botrytized fruit. This is a very fine Sauternes 2008. Tasted January 2012. Wine Advocate.February, 2012
