2015 vintage. Sauternes will have to focus more and more on dry wines if they want to survive, but I strongly believe in the potential for dry white wines in this region. This is 100% Sémillon made by Sauternes Cru Classé Sigalas Rabaud. Deep yellow. Intense perfume of pineapple, flowers, honey and a hint of brioche. Powerful taste with exotic dried fruit, rather low-acid but well-balanced. Some residual sugar is obvious in the finish, but it works well for this exuberant style. Abv. 14,5%.

A rare 100% semillon but this doesn't make it particularly particular in taste. Perfectly palatable but for the price it's underwhelming for the winery's best dry white.

This one grows on you. Delightful predinner wine and excellent with Chilean sea bass
