Editorial Reviews for Château Rauzan-Segla Margaux Ex-Negociant
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.

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 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.
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

The harvest was spread out over four weeks because of a staggered flowering. The date of the harvest was essential to obtain grapes with a great concentration, and an impressive tannic structure while keeping a nice freshness and remarkable balance. Patience and the careful work of our pickers have given us the confidence that the 2010 harvest will result in a great vintage.
