Cellar/Tasting Notes "Enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel, Full-bodied, very sweet and thick, with honey and caramel flavors. Long and rich, oozing with sweet ripe fruit, this s like liquid candy."
Cellar/Tasting Notes Domaine Chavy-Chouet was founded when two of the oldest families in Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet were brought together. The Enseigneres Vineyard is the most famous of the Puligny-Montrachet “villages” and known for some of the best value white Burgundies. The wines are full and rich with..

A streak of citrusy acidity adds balance, while subtle hints of caramelized sugar and tea leaves add twists to the long, honey-kissed finish."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The Sigalas Rabaud was sensational out of barrel and served blind, the wine does nothing to dispel my initial optimism that this is the apogee for the estate – so far. It is bestowed with an intense bouquet of quince, orange zest and almond with a lighter touch of honey compared to its peers...
