Chateau Sigalas Rabaud 1986

Chateau Sigalas Rabaud – First Growth Sauternes

Bill Blatch: 1986, with its onrush of damp-conditions botrytis, rather like in 1996, was never supposed to be much of a keeper, but Sigalas, with its usual almost German Riesling style of  crispness when young, always seems to evolve into this savorous kind of ‘breed’: Now a fully mature Sauternes, just bursting with all those secondary aromas of dried apricot and mango that can only come from properly aged Sauternes, this has real elegance in its maturity.
