2007 Sigalas Rabaud, Sauternes (Previously $55.)

SKU #1054834

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A beautifully ripe wine, layering all the dense botrytis of the vintage with freshest acidity. It has weight, the texture of grainy honey, ripe yellow fruits, mango and orange zest. Impressive and certainly for aging." (06/10) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This is so thick and dense, with an ultrarich palate of dried lemon, apple pie and toffee. Full and spicy, yet not overly sweet. Very powerful and long. Blockbuster comes to mind. Best after 2014." (04/10) 91-93 points Robert Parker: "...Honey, acacia and a touch of orange blossom, although it is very compact at the moment. The palate is very well balanced with good levels of botrytized fruits, touches of marmalade and lemon zest, leading towards hints of Clementine on the well-poised finish. Good breeding, great length, nice Sauternes! Drink 2010-2030. Tasted April 2008." (04/08)

This is the next great Sauternes vintage behind the 2001.This to me was tightly wound right now but densely packed with honey, apricot jam and citrus. The lengthy finish was more of the rich honey and apricot but also spice. This wine is good now but will show even more in 5 years.
