Chateau Rauzan Segla Margaux 2014
* *2014 Bordeaux Future. Delivery Fall 2017.*"The Château Rauzan-Ségla 2014 is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc picked between 22 September until 16 October. It has a precise bouquet, nothing incredibly powerful with a touch of cold stone coming through with aeration. This is conservative even for this Margaux estate that usually keeps everything “controlled” out of barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannin, crisp acidity, tensile and linear with sappy black fruit towards the finish. I was just seeking more substance to come through on the finish – it just does not quite deliver that knock out blow." *-Wine Advocate (90-92 Points)** *We will notify you on arrival in 2017.*

Editorial Reviews for Chateau Rauzan Segla Margaux
Quite red fruited on the nose with some citussy tones, flower petals, touch of sweet cinnamon – lovely entry, round, nice density yet restrained, great freshness and transparency, big minty herb tones float above the ripe fruit, finishes with bright fresh fruit and great length (93-94)
Wieder ein toller, süffiger Jahrgang für Ségla. Super Qualität, feine Tannine, sehr gut ausgebaut, ein toller Margaux.
Three and a half glasses
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, spritely blend of flavors in the typically palate pleasing bordeaux style.
Powerful nose of cassis, blackberry, and other dark fruits with earth and oak notes as well. Medium-full body with acidity that is definitely there but not overstated. Supple berry and dark fruit flavors on the palate with just a hint of earthiness, a touch of oak, and a hint of vanilla as well. Good overall balance. Very finely textured tannins. The finish is lengthy and maintains a good balance, with maybe just a touch of alcohol. This wine still is a bit young and would probably benefit from more bottle aging. Still, this was a very enjoyable wine. Strong 4 out of 5.
External Reviews for Chateau Rauzan Segla Margaux
The grand vin has a fine bouquet not complex but clean and fresh with redcurrant and raspberry fruit nicely integrated oak. It needs a little more delineation although it does appear to gain clarity with encouragement. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins perhaps a little more rustic than usual but with good weight. Fine red fruit linear and masculine this deserves two or three years in bottle after release. Tasted April 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
A 2013 with a firm and silky tannin texture and fresh and clean fruit. Medium to full body with lovely textured mouth feel and a long finish. Savory and delicate. James Suckling.
The 2012 Rauzan Segla may turn out to be as strong an effort as their 2010. A brilliant blend of 54.5% Cabernet Sauvignon 44% Merlot (which accounts for the wines ripeness and intensity) and the rest a tiny dollop of 1.5% Petit Verdot it boasts an inky/blue/purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of black and blue fruits spring flowers and hints of background toast and forest floor. Well-integrated wood and acidity as well as moderately ripe tannins make for a medium to full-bodied expansive flavorful rich well-delineated effort. It will need 3-5 years of bottle age and should drink well for two decades thereafter. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
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
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.
