Rauzan-Segla 2014

Rauzan-Segla

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 95.0

In the 19th century Château Rauzan-Segla was considered one of the leading second growth properties, partnered alongside the reputable Mouton Rothschild. Today Rauzan-Segla still upholds its stellar reputation for creating spectacular wines. Following a period of reputational decline, from the 1980’s onward it embarked on a renaissance before eventually being bought by Chanel in 1994. Today it comprises 45 hectares of vineyard of which are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.63%), Merlot (c.35%) and Cabernet Franc (c.2%) with a majority of the vines located on the Cantenac plateau. The terroir of Rauzan-Segla is mostly gravel with clay soils and the final blend is matured in 60% new oak for 18 months. Today Rauzan-Segla is honoured for creating spectacular wines, with the 2018, 2019 and 2020 vintages described as “spellbinding” by critic Jeff Leve. This wine has incredible ageing potential and properly begins to open up with age. With time it is known for delivering complex floral and spicy notes, packed with concentration and juicy ripe fruit.

The 2014 Rauzan-Ségla is another classic Margaux that shines for its elegance and complexity, the hallmarks of this beautiful estate. Ample black and blue fruits, cedarwood, and spice notes all emerge from the glass, followed by medium to full body, a beautiful texture, polished, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It’s unquestionably enjoyable today, but it will benefit from a handful of years in the cellar and keep for 20-25 years.

The deep garnet colored 2014 Rauzan-Ségla reveals an open-knit, expressive nose of potpourri, unsmoked cigars, spice box and red loam with a core of plum preserves, blackcurrant jelly and bay leaves plus a touch of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied with compelling earthy layers and a real savoriness in the mouth, it has firm, chunky tannins and bold freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note. The blend this year is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, harvested between September 22nd and October 16th, at an average yield of 37 hectoliters per hectare. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, 60% new. The alcohol is 13.5%, and the pH is 3.59.
