2016

La bouteille du vin Le Château Sigalas Rabaud.

Spring 2016 was particularly rainy. In the midst of these rains, a window of good weather during the week of the flower, about May 20, was given by a generous nature. The result was beautiful, we had a potential of large volume. The summer that followed was particularly hot and dry. The clays of Sigalas having been soaked with water, the vines had all the reserves to thrive during the summer. Maturity took place quietly. This summer period continuing, we had to be armed with patience to see the Botrytis appear on our bunches. Heat and moisture combining, the mushroom has developed very quickly. We carried out 3 successive tries, the rot being nothing but noble, it was sufficient to preserve the balance so typical of Sigalas without excess of sugar. The harvest ended on October 22 just before the end of the Indian summer and the return of the rains.

Tasting

Le nez très expressif associe des aromes éclatants de fruits frais : ananas, pomme, pêche blanche avec les fines notes florales habituelles de Sigalas. Après la fermentation, les vins ont gardé l’éclat et le croquant des mouts à peine rentrés. La bouche est tendue puis d’un grand équilibre, le retour est aussi flamboyant que le premier nez. La finale fraiche et pure se prolonge, encore et encore. Ce 2016, croquant, vivant, tendu est sur sa jeunesse d’un charme séducteur.
