One of my favorite 2006 Bordeaux. A smooth red fruit nose with great depth. In the mouth, chocolate and tobacco complement the cassis fruit core. Structured, yet very smooth and mouthfilling. Silky and beautiful (a bit light) with a long finish on black fruit. Truly special.

Bright red-ruby. Aromas of boysenberry, licorice and cedary, nutty oak lifted by a floral topnote. Juicy, dry and vinous; not a particularly fleshy wine but elegant, high-pitched and sexy, with lovely energy giving clarity to the sappy dark fruit, licorice and oak flavors. Finishes with firm tannins and very good sneaky persistence. Classic claret. Not hard today, but Iandrsquo;d still sock this one away.

On the same qualitative level as this estateandrsquo;s brilliant 2005, but with slightly less sucrosite, this blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, exhibits a 1986-like personality, a very successful vintage at Rauzan Segla. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of bay leaf, black currants, licorice, truffles, and a touch of toast, dazzling fruit, and plenty of ripe, but not astringent tannins. This is a medium to full-bodied, classic, pure, surprisingly approachable Rauzen Segla that will be at its finest between 2012andndash;2025+.

Raspberry, violet and blueberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft, refined tannins and a long finish. Such finesse and precision. Best from 2014 through 2020.

A big, ripe chocolate-flavored wine with spice, new wood and a smooth, polished character. It is rich, with black currant jelly flavors, but this richness is balanced with a lively freshness and subtlety in its tannins. The finish is long, the flavors echoing the perfumes on the nose.

In 1661, Pierre des Mesures de Rauzan, an important winemerchant in Bordeaux, acquired the vineyard and gave his name to the estate. For two centuries generations of the Rauzan family succeeded in the running of the property and the Rauzan-Segla wines grew in reputation in a remarkable way. This Margaux, ranked as a Second Growth, was reborn in 1994 when Chanel became its owner.At that point, everything was set in motion to restore the reputation and rank of this gem of the Margaux appellation. Painstaking soil preparation, pruning, handpicking, sorting of grapesàare some of the precautionary measures vital for the quality of the wines produced. Rauzan-Segla wines offer a generous bouquet with clever elegance expressing the internationally recognised characteristics of the Margaux terroir

The 2006 Rauzan-Segla has a moderately dense, dark color with a faintly 'sweet', fine aroma of black fruits and berries. In the mouth, it exhibits great elegance and focus along with good concentration. The wine finishes long, fresh and positive with a faintly bitter tannic note. As always, this is a wine that emphasizes finess, not power. Tasted from barrel in April '07. Rauzan-Segla offers a soft, reserved aroma with high class fruit beneath. The palate is perfectly ripe, polished and integrated, complete from attack to finish. Rauzan-Segla '06 possesses great purity and class. Tasted January '09. Robert Parker 93.
