Sigalas Rabaud

Château Sigalas-Rabaud, previously also named Château Rabaud-Sigalas, is a Bordeaux wine producer in the Sauternes appellation. Its sweet white wine ranked as Premier Cru Classé (French, “First Growth”) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. It is located in the commune of Bommes in the region of Graves. It was once joined with Château Rabaud-Promis in the estate named Château Rabaud. With only 14 hectares (35 acres), Château Sigalas-Rabaud is the smallest of all crus classés of the 1855 classification.

Sigalas-Rabaud has 14.25 hectares (35.2 acres) of vineyards, planted with 85% Sémillon, 14% Sauvignon blanc and 1% Muscadelle. The average yield is 17 hectoliter per hectare.

Château Sigalas-Rabaud produces three wines:

  • The Château Sigalas-Rabaud Grand Vin, a Sauternes;
  • A second wine called Lieutenant de Sigalas, also a Sauternes;
  • A dry white wine called Demoiselle de Sigalas, a Bordeaux Blanc.

Annual production is around 30 000 bottles. Château Sigalas-Rabaud spends 18–24 months in new oak barrels before bottling. The proportion of the production that goes into the second wine depends on the quality of the vintage, and has varied between 0% and 34% in recent years.

The name of the second wine has been Lieutenant de Sigalas since 2004; before that it was known as Cadet de Sigalas.

The first vintage of the dry white wine Demoiselle de Sigalas was 2009, and it was composed of 50% Sémillon and 50% Sauvignon blanc.
