This is very racy and intense with a orange peel and stone character. Full and super lively on the palate with a long, long finish. Excellent. Only 27% of the production went into this. I like the punch at the end. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) 3000ml

Dark red color. Nose of average intensity fruity and slightly peppery. It is also floral and smells of cherry. Smooth and very fruity on entry the wine develops with a caressing touch always smooth with an enjoyable pulp. Average length. The wine finishes on liquorice and plum characteristics. This will be easily enjoyed in its youth. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com


Winemaker's Notes:

"This is very racy and intense with a orange peel and stone character. Full and super lively on the palate with a long, long finish. Excellent. Only 27% of the production went into this. I like the punch at the end. 93-94" JS 04/12 "Modern style, with a good fleshy feel and a nice smoky edge to the currant, fig and melted licorice notes. Stays velvety through the finish, with the flavors melding nicely...89-92" WS 04/12 "Representing only 42% of the total vineyard production, the 2011 Rauzan Segla is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. The 2011 possesses some characteristics reminiscent of the estate’s fabulous 1986, both wines sharing great intensity, structure and formidable aging potential. Moreover, analytically, the 2011 has similar numbers to both the 2009 and 2010, which is remarkable given the overall weather conditions in Bordeaux during the 2011 growing season. The natural alcohol is 13% and the wine is full-bodied, but this 2011 will require patience as it needs a minimum of 5-6 years to become drinkable. It should keep for two decades or more...91-94" WA 04/12
