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.

Sehr geschmeidig, fast "milchig". Viel Beeren, bereits abgerundete Tannine. Der wird GROSS!

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.

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 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

To reiterate, the 2010 Rauzan Segla is like a super-duper version of the 1986. Displaying fabulous density, an inky purple color and a superb nose of forest floor with a hint of menthol as well as loads of creme de cassis, mocha and touches of chocolate and subtle oak, this full-bodied, deep, concentrated wine represents only 45% of the estate’s production. It is certainly not for those who can’t wait a few years for it to round into shape, as I suspect it needs at least 5–8 years of bottle-age, but it should last for half a century or more.

60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 3.5% petit verdot, and 1.5% cabernet franc. Aged for 18 months in approximately 50% new oak. Wow. This is a blockbuster of a wine, showing abundant dark red fruit on the nose with mocha, roasted coffee and vanilla.... Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) 1500ml
