The estate from the left bank of Garonne offers a wine tasting composed of two grape varieties:
- Semillon 85%
- Sauvignon Blanc 15%
To produce the wine of Château Sigalas Rabaud, the estate uses both a vertical press and a pneumatic press. After vinification in French oak barrels, the wine is aged on average in 33% new French oak barrels for at least 18 months before bottling.
Resulting from the late harvest, this Sauternes perfectly combines freshness, power and aromatic balance. A remarkable length in the mouth and an impressive purity of the fruit come back in the tasting comments. An exceptional Sauternes.
The estate also produces a second wine from the youngest vines, Lieutenant Sigalas.
