Château Rauzan-Segla Margaux Ex-Negociant 2009

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

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.

This wine's ripeness shows in candied scents of cassis while sandy tannins build the savory side of the flavor. With air, the wine gains luscious richness, a sleek, finely crafted Bordeaux that will need time to show its distinctions. Wine & Spirits. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) 750ml
