About this wine producer: In 1832, the Guide Julién, (antecedent to the iconic Féret guide to Bordeaux), ranked the production of Rabaud at the same level as Yquem and Rayne-Vigneau. Henri de Sigalas purchased the vineyards in 1863, noting the value of a winery rated Premier Cru in 1855, and adding his name to the winery. His son, Pierre Gaston, sold off much of the property in order to concentrate on the best sites which remain in the family today. The current proprietor is Laure de Lambert Compeyrot, the sixth generation to work the vines. Through her efforts, in 2016, Sigalas Rabaud received the certification of “High Environmental Value”.
