Château Rauzan-Segla Margaux Ex-Negociant 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Feinaromatisches Bouquet, schwarze Pflaumen, Edelhölzer, Zedern und ein zarter Hauch Havannazigarren. Im Gaumen sehr fein, klar ausgerichtete Frucht, ausgeglichen, langanhaltend.

Château Rauzan-ségla:
The history of Chateau Rauzan-Segla started in the reign of Louis XIV, when Pierre de Rauzan acquired the estate in 1 661.

The history of Chateau Rauzan-Segla started in the reign of Louis XIV, when Pierre de Rauzan acquired the estate in 1 661. This wealthy man, a leading and well-reputed Bordeaux wine trader, also became the tax farmer of Chateau Margaux and Chateau Latour. Over the years, generations of the Rauzan family succeeded to the running of the estate, as they were to become Counsellors of the Bordeaux Parliament as well. Rauzan-Segla wines grew in reputation in a remarkable way and were some of the most highly rated in Bordeaux. They delighted many well-known figures, most famously Thomas Jefferson who came across this wine during his visit to the vineyards of Bordeaux, placing an order for several cases of it. He thus became a fervent admirer of Rauzan-Segla wines. Some decades later the 1855 classification ranked Chateau Rauzan-Segla as a Second Growth. Frederic Cruse, the estate's owner, had the current chateau built in 1 903. He approached the architect Louis Garros, who drew his inspiration from the original Perigord-style buildings in the construction of the chateau, as well as G. Le Breton to design the park and green spaces. Then time went by, and the Chateau gradually fell into a slumber... It wasn't until 1 994 that the complete renovation of the estate returned the Chateau and grounds to their original splendour. The patina of age, the climbing rose bushes, the hydrangeas, blond Bourg stone and verdant lawns - today everything radiates the tranquil calm of a residence filled with opulent charm. Read less

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.

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.

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

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

Vintage 2010 Appellation: Margaux - 2eme Grand Cru Classe 1855 Vineyard area in production: 66 Ha Yield: 37 hl/Ha Terroir: Deep and fine gravels Grape varieties: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot 3.5% Petit Verdot 1.5% Cabernet Franc Density of plantation: 6 600 to 10 000 vines/Ha Average age of the vines: 35 years Vineyard management: Double Guyot pruning - Manual deleafing - Crop thinning before colour change - Integrated pest management (sexual confusion for grape-worms, traditional ploughing - grass sowing for increased stress) HARVEST The temperature range (warm days, cool nights) in September and October helped complete the maturation process of the grapes. 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. Merlot: September 23rd and 24th - from September 29th to October 9th Cabernet Franc: October 12th Petit Verdot : October 9th Cabernet Sauvignon: from October 9th to 19th VINIFICATION Alcoholic fermentation: lasted 8 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats Pumping over: 2 to 3 times a day – 1,5 the volume of the vat Temperature: 27°C for the merlot and 28°C for the cabernet sauvignon Maceration: Merlot: 25 days Petit Verdot: 18 days Cabernet Sauvignon: 25 days Cabernet Franc: 21 days Malolactic fermentation: in vat, a few wines in barrel Ageing: 60 % new oak barrels for Chateau Rauzan-Segla & 25 % for Segla - 18 months on average – French oak – Medium toast – Racking with the candle every 3 months - Fining with fresh egg whites.

In 1661, Pierre des Mesures de Rauzan, an important winemerchant in Bordeaux, acquired the vineyard and gave his name to the estate. For two centuries generations of the Rauzan family succeeded in the running of the property and the Rauzan-Segla wines grew in reputation in a remarkable way. This Margaux, ranked as a Second Growth, was reborn in 1994 when Chanel became its owner.At that point, everything was set in motion to restore the reputation and rank of this gem of the Margaux appellation. Painstaking soil preparation, pruning, handpicking, sorting of grapesàare some of the precautionary measures vital for the quality of the wines produced. Rauzan-Segla wines offer a generous bouquet with clever elegance expressing the internationally recognised characteristics of the Margaux terroir
