2018 Château Sigalas Rabaud

$672.00
6 x 750ml
This is lovely, a success in the vintage and one of the best on display, offering a silky texture and clear emphasis on precision and grip, with high notes of lime and citrus on the nose. It has mango and peach on the attack followed by creamy lemon as it spins out through the palate. The acidity doesn't quite spiral downwards and upwards as in the best years, but you do get great lift through the palate and a persistency to the flavours. This is an estate that really has been doing huge amounts of work on its flavour profiles recently, saving only its very best grapes and terroirs for the sweet wine.

This is vivid and lively with spicy and dried-mushroom character. Medium-to full-bodied. Very sweet yet fresh at the end.

Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2018 Sigalas Rabaud feels a little muted on the nose when tasted from the barrel sample. The palate is ripe and rounded with white chocolate tinged, honeyed fruit, though here I find the finish a little cloying and calling out for more tension and race.

This is lively, with peach, acacia and heather notes that stay relatively fresh through the finish.
