  • 2009 Château Sigalas Rabaud

    I have been steadily working away at draining my second bottle of the 2009 sigalas rabaud (sauternes) and found that it lasts quite a long time in the refrigerator between nips, which is always a good sign that the wine will have good longevity in the cellar. The flavors changed little from the first sip until the last drops two weeks later. The wine is quite dense and viscous with a strong midpalate which matches the pear, peach and apricot nose. Sweet and sour mingle together and work with the botrytis to generate great balance. All of the components are singing an even, well balanced chorus with no singer too loud or meak. The finish, a sweet persistent buzz that would mezmerize a bee into a confusing dance. A very complete drink which easily replaces desert and raises good cholesterol too!

  • 1989 Château Rieussec R

    The '89 is drinking wonderfully now and with a hefty amount of acidity and very dense fruit I can't imagine this stuff ever fading. I have six more bottles and I will probably have the next one in two years.
