Château Rauzan-Gassies Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the strongest efforts from Rauzan-Gassies in many years, the 2010 may turn out to be a sleeper of the vintage. It reveals an opaque purple color along with notes of incense, licorice, black currants and blackberries, impressive concentration, soft tannins and good acidity. This is a solidly made, full throttle Margaux to cellar for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following 25 years...90-93" WA 05/11 "Silky and stylish, with alluring spice and black tea notes leading the way for a rich core of crushed plum and boysenberry fruit. The finish is long and supple...89-91 (BT)" WS Web Only 2011 "Solid red, with lots of blackberry and toasted oak character. Full body, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. Well-done for this estate...91" JS 04/11

About the producer: The terroir of Château Rauzan-Gassies lies exclusively on the glacial gravel of Margaux and Cantenac, overlooking the Gironde river. The excellent drainage of this soil makes it ideal for an elite vineyard. The gravel along the river is a sanctuary for Margaux vineyards, that were already reputed in the Middle Ages. All the Château Rauzan-Gassies terroirs are part of the "Historical Margaux", and were planted with vines long before 1855.
