Château Sigalas Rabaud Cover Image

A brief history

In the 17th century, the magistrates of Bordeaux Parliament discovered the potential of the great terroirs of the Garonne River. Councilor Rabaud then created a vineyard of 60ha south of Ciron, famous tributary of the Garonne.
In 1832, the Guide Jullien, (reference guide of the time), classified the quality of Rabaud production at the level of that of Yquem and Rayne Vigneau. Then during the classification of 1855, many estates including Latour, Haut Brion, and Rabaud, were elevated to the rank of 1er cru.

Created in the 17th century, the Rabaud vineyard becomes First Growth wine at the occasion of the classification in 1855. In 1863, Henry de Sigalas acquired the estate. Forty years later, his unique son, Pierre Gaston de Sigalas sold the biggest part of the estate. He only kept « the jewel of Sigalas », a hill composed of gravels which faces the South, the current 14 hectares. Today, the de Lambert des Granges family, heir to Château Sigalas Rabaud, perpetuates the tradition by respecting the « terroir » and the selection of the wines in order to produce a Great Sauternes.
