Lieutenant de Sigalas 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The land of Rabaud, created in the 17th century, was bought in 1863 by Henri DROUILLET de Sigalas. 40 years later, his only son, Pierre Gaston, sold the major part of it to the PROMIS family, but kept all the south-facing gravely outcrop known as “the Jewel of Sigalas”. Today the Lambert des Granges family, heir to Château Sigalas Rabaud, carries on the tradition of respect for the terroir and stringent selection of the wines to produce a wonderful classified growth as well as a lovely second wine, named Lieutenant. This blend is obtained mainly from early and late pickings which provide slightly lower concentration. The Lieutenant de Sigalas is a versatile, wonderfully easy drinking Sauternes which provides instantaneous pleasure.

Very nice dessert wine, full of tropical coconut aromas. I'm not a huge fan of dessert wines, but this was very palatable.

Extremely sweet (too sweet for even my taste), little finish, a little sour.

Rich dessert wine, probably enjoyed best when served with an appropriate cheese pairing at the end of a meal



Tasting Notes:

An easy-drinking wine with apricot, honeysuckle and a spicy nose.
