Rauzan-Segla

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drink To: 2050

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.

Jeb Dunnuck

This estate continues to never put a foot wrong, and their 2023 Château Rauzan-Ségla is one class act. Deep purple-hued, with fabulous aromatics of cassis, smoky blue fruits, tobacco, spicy oak, and subtle floral notes, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a polished, incredibly elegant mouthfeel, and ripe, fine-grained tannins. Its not a blockbuster, but it shines for its flawless balance, complexity, and length.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2023 Rauzan-Segla is deep garnet-purple in color. It prances out with flamboyant notes of Morello cherries, blackcurrant pastilles, violets, and licorice giving way to suggestions of rosebud tea, crushed rocks, and Sichuan pepper. The medium-bodied palate delivers amazing tension to offset the shiny black and red berry layers, framed by velvety tannins, finishing long and perfumed. This is gorgeous! The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.5% Merlot, and 1.5% Petit Verdot, aging 18 months in oak, 55% new, with pH 3.61 and yield 30 hl/ ha.
