About this Item

1996 Sauternes
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

Château Sigalas Rabaud is a Premier Cru Classé wine estate in the Sauternes appellation of Bordeaux, producing both the classic sweet white wines associated with the region and a number of dry whites, all predominantly made from the Sémillon grape. The estate lies in the northern Bommes commune of the wider Sauternes appellation.
The 14-hectare estate is the smallest of the Sauternes first growths and is planted predominantly to Sémillon (85 percent). The remaining 15 percent of the vineyard is given over to Sauvignon Blanc, which is found in some of the wines.
Neighbors include first growth stablemates Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey to the southeast and Rayne Vigneau to the southwest.

Sigalas Rabaud Sauternes 1996 is an exquisite sweet wine that exemplifies the quality and tradition of the Sauternes appellation. With its rich, honeyed flavors, balanced sweetness, and excellent aging potential, it offers a luxurious and memorable tasting experience. Whether enjoyed now or after additional cellaring, this wine is a testament to the artistry and dedication of Château Sigalas Rabaud.

Critics Ratings

‘The 1996 Sigalas-Rabaud is a cool climate-styled wine with quince, kiwi, and honeyed pineapple-like fruit. It is medium-bodied, with little viscosity, as well as zesty underlying acidity, and an austere yet clean, crisp, mineral-like finish. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.’ - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
