New wine for Château Sigalas Rabaud

Laure de Lambert is working closely with her father but this dynamic young winemaker is never the less slowly but surely making her influence felt at Sauternes 1er grand cru classé Château Sigalas Rabaud.
2009 will be the first vintage that this small ‘boutique ‘ Sauternes will make a dry white white wine, the production of which has become common practice amongst the top Sauternes and Barsac properties.
We tasted from the 4 barrels of this Semillion-Sauvignon blend and what a delightfully floral and complex wine.
Normally the dry white wines of the region take as their name the initial of the Sauternes premier vin, following in the footsteps of Y d’Yquem. However S and R are already taken what to do?
The name is to be confirmed but will probably be La Demoiselle de Sigalas after her very dynamic Grand mother – now we know who Laure takes after!
