Chateau Rauzan-Segla Margaux 2009
Berry Bros & Rudd review: Lifted aromas of violets and fresh black cherries greet the nose whilst the<br/>palate has a good concentration of red and black fruit, fine tannins and a<br/>toasty, savoury twist to the finish. A lovely freshness runs through this wine,<br/>suggesting it will keep well for many years to come.

External Reviews for Chateau Rauzan-Segla Margaux
A bright and solid core of cherry and blueberry fruit layered nicely throughout the glass with a good ending of nutmeg mocha and vanilla. Rich and round. Try it with pork tenderloins in a light brown gravy Salisbury steak with onions and mushrooms and Swedish meatballs with egg noodles.
Shows a lovely concentration of currant and blackberry. Hints of vanilla follow through to a full body, with layers of ripe fruit and fine, fruit-coated tannins. I love the ripe and pretty fruit to this. Very fruit-forward. The chateau cut back on the new wood, and went for a fruitier style.

Feinaromatisches Bouquet, schwarze Pflaumen, Edelhölzer, Zedern und ein zarter Hauch Havannazigarren. Im Gaumen sehr fein, klar ausgerichtete Frucht, ausgeglichen, langanhaltend.
This wine's ripeness shows in candied scents of cassis while sandy tannins build the savory side of the flavor. With air, the wine gains luscious richness, a sleek, finely crafted Bordeaux that will need time to show its distinctions. Wine & Spirits.
