About Château Sigalas-Rabaud

By Paul Caputo

Chateau Sigalas-Rabaud is one of the great names of Sauternes. It produces luxurious sweet wines that rival the very best in the world.

Situated in the South West of France, just to the south of Bordeaux, Chateau Sigalas-Rabaud takes advantage of the natural humidity that gathers in this part of the region and allows for the production of naturally sweet wines from botrytis.

The chateau itself was created in the seventeenth century and like many other estates at the time, went about its business making good wine. It was with the advent of the 1855 classification though that Sigalas-Rabaud came to prominence. Along with ten other properties, Sigalas-Rabaud was rated as a first growth.
