Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château Sigalas-Rabaud 2011 has a Semillon-driven bouquet with honey, beeswax, honeysuckle and white peach scents all focused and gaining in intensity in the glass. The palate is viscous on the entry, the honeyed fruits neatly offset by the acidity. It does not quite build upon its initial promise however, opting to play it safe on the finish. It is undoubtedly an attractive Sauternes but I suspect that affording it several year’s cellaring will pay dividends. eRobertParker.com.February, 2015

The Sigalas-Rabaud has a precise bouquet of lightly honeyed fruit mingling with orange blossom and apricot. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, although this is not a powerful Sauternes and it is missing concentration on the delicate, pretty finish, which has fine tension if not length. Perhaps it will improve by the time of bottling? Drink 2013-2025. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2012

Spicy and tangy character in this wine with dried apricot and pineapple with a botrytis burn on the finish. Full and very rich. Excellent density. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Quite rich, with mango, pineapple and apricot notes on a large frame. The long, creamy finish features a lot of ginger and nectarine. Shows raw power now, but the purity and length are here. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

RS 130 g/l, TA 3.8 g/l. Mid to deep gold. Very attractive oily spice over apricot and lemon richness. Same golden spice on the palate, becoming elegant and fruity as it crosses the palate and refined on the finish. Lovely harmony in a rich style. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Great poise and balance. In keeping with its recent style, the flavours are complex, delicately layered, backed by crisp acidity. For a gentle wine the finish is very long. Drink 2021-2045. Decanter.com

Subtle nose of mango and apricots. Full and concentrated on the palate with a bright acidity. Ginger, nectarine and dried apricots character. One to watch. FINE+RARE
