DOMAINE ANNE ET HERVÉ SIGAUT

WONDERFUL UNDER THE RADAR BURGUNDIES

sigaut

This small estate has been in existence for four generations. Hervé and Anne Sigaut took over for Maurice Sigaut in 1990 and since that time have made significant improvements in the vineyards and cellar. The winery was updated in 2004 and the wines are made with minimal intervention and judicious use of new oak. At about 15 acres in size, the domaine is blessed with a large proportion of old vines. However, perhaps because the domaine does not have any Grand Crus, the wines have remained “under the radar.”  This is the first time I have tasted wines from this domaine and I found them impressive across the entire range. The wines are very refined and elegant yet with definition and flavor and each retains its sense of place. In short, they are classic Burgundies that will be a great addition to any cellar. Moreover, in today’s world of Red Burgundy, they are good values. The wines offer a lot of early charm as is characteristic of the vintage (to read the article on the 2015 Burgundy vintage click here) yet will evolve over decades. And, the wines are consistently outstanding from top to bottom. Don’t miss them!  I have added some to my cellar. I suggest that you do the same!!
