The 2009 Sigalas-Rabaud has a rather light bouquet that lacks the intensity of its peers. It needs more vigour. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, nicely balanced and lightly spiced with ginger and rhubarb towards the finish. I have encountered better bottles in the past, hence my question mark. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. 90?
