2011 Sigalas-Rabaud, Sauternes

SKU #1159700 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wow. This Sauternes shows an amazing intensity of dried pineapple, mango and spicy botrytis. It really shakes you. Full body and very sweet, but with an intense, wild finish of everything. Speechless. Best ever from here. Hard not to drink it now, but better in 2020. Inner quote mark (1/2014)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Dry and spicy with layers of sweet, textured honey, this is a complex, structured wine. It has acidity, with pineapple and ripe apple flavors that are laced together with wildflower honey. The inner core is firm and dry. The wine will be ready to drink from 2018. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has superb cut, with bitter almond and citrus notes lining the core of pineapple, mango and white peach flavors. The lush, ginger-accented finish has terrific vibrancy. This should stretch out nicely. Best from 2018 through 2035. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2015)

92 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright yellow-gold. Very pure aromas of lemon, guava, mango, minerals and fresh flowers are lifted by spicy botrytis. Sweet, rich and seamless, with smoky flavors of pineapple and grapefruit. Very long on the aftertaste, which showcases pure, spicy citrus and apricot notes. (ID) 92+ Inner quote mark (7/2014)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Smoky apricot and mandarin nose. Good attack, sweet and pungent, this is supple rather than racy, with purity of fruit and a long, spicy finish. (SB) Inner quote mark

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale lemon-gold in color, the 2011 Sigalas Rabaud is seductively scented of musk perfume, honeyed peaches and dried mango slices with touches of crushed rocks and brioche. Multilayered in the unctuously fruited mouth, it has a decadently satiny texture countered by seamless freshness, finishing long and savory. (LPB) Inner quote mark (8/2018)
