Very bright and engaging, with a range of green almond, glazed pear, creamed yellow apple and apricot notes all stretching out nicely already. Flecks of ginger, toasted peach and guava fill in the finish. Score Range: 90-93

Bright, pale yellow-gold. Reticent but extremely pure, floral aromas of fresh tropical fruit salad, sweet spices and vanilla, lifted by mineral and lemony botrytis nuances. Wonderfully honeyed, pristine tropical and fresh citrus fruit flavors are complemented by clove and nutmeg. Harmonious acidity lifts and extends the wine's fruit flavors at the back. The 2013 vintage really plays to this estate's strengths, as Sigalas Rabaud is always a refined, graceful Sauternes. Superb potential here.

A Sauternes with a pretty density and richness that remains compressed and structured. Full body, very sweet and a flavorful finish. Lots of botrytis spice. Give it a year or two to come together.

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.

Region: Bordeaux

The wineries of Bordeaux in France are widely considered to be amongst the finest on earth, with many of the chateaux found on the Left Bank and in the Médoc region routinely demanding enormous prices and being snapped up by collectors looking to add the best examples of the world's white and red wines to their cellars. Bordeaux's secret to success comes from the fact that the terroir of the region is exceptionally rich in minerals, helped by the clay and gravel soils which typify the area and the Gironde river which runs through it. Normally humid in climate, the nearby Atlantic coast supplies cooling breezes, making Bordeaux a winemaker's dream and resulting in extremely high quality grape varietals. For hundreds of years, the wineries of Bordeaux have been mastering the art of wine blending, and today produce a wide range of wine styles using many of the sixteen grape varietals permitted to grow in the region by French law.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
