Wine Enthusiast, February 2014

This is typical of the ripe and opulent style of this property with superripe black currant fruit. It's concentrated in flavor, but also structured with smooth tannins. It's a wine both for short-term fruitiness and...

A wine with a beautiful aromas and flavors of dark fruits, minerals and dried flowers. Full body, integrated tannins and a fresh finish. A little chewy but will soften with age. Better in 2017.

Austere and a little closed right now, this is not hugely generous at first but opens to show silky tannins, with elegance and balance. Puts the focus squarely on mint leaf and eucalyptus, along with slate and cassis...

The 2011 Rauzan-Ségla is more red-fruited and spice-driven, with complex tobacco, dried earth, flowers, and cedar notes in the background. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and elegant on the palate, it has the...

Vinous, April 2022

The 2011 Rauzan-Ségla has a ripe, flesh, red plum, hoisin and sandalwood-scented bouquet, quite showy and forward, willing to give sensory pleasure now, not tomorrow. The palate is beautifully balanced, fresh and saline...

This would be a nice wine in any vintage, but it's a true accomplishment in 2011. Truffle, earth, plums, black cherry and spice aromas come to the surface with ease. The fruit is bright, with good freshness and balance...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2020

Deep garnet colored, the 2011 Rauzan-Ségla displays a series of earthy notes to begin—truffles, moss-covered bark, fungi and tilled soil—over a core of redcurrant jelly, blackberry pie and mincemeat with hints of...

Wine Spectator, April 2012

Modern style with a good fleshy feel and a nice smoky edge to the currant fig and melted licorice notes. Stays velvety through the finish with the flavors melding nicely.-J.M.

The 2011 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) is a Bordeaux Blend from the renowned Bordeaux region in France. With a deep garnet color, this red wine exudes elegance and sophistication. The nose is beautifully defined, offering crisp blackberry aromas with fine mineral undertones. As it opens up, hints of orange blossom emerge, adding a touch of complexity.

On the palate, this wine showcases excellent balance and a pleasing sense of tension. Silky smooth tannins create a luxurious mouthfeel, while cassis flavors dominate, accompanied by notes of cocoa, baking spices, and confectionary sugar. The palate is further enriched by hints of mocha chocolate and a touch of kirsch, adding depth and richness.

This wine has received high praise from wine critics. Alex Lallos from JJ Buckley awarded it an impressive score of 94, describing it as "well done" and recommending it for enjoyment between 2017 and 2030. Wine Spectator awarded it a score of 92, noting its fleshy feel and velvety texture. Neal Martin's Wine Journal gave it a score of 93, praising its satisfying purity and excellent persistency.

The 2011 Rauzan-Segla is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 3.5% Petit Verdot, and 1.5% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, 70% of which was new. With an alcohol percentage of 13.5%, this wine strikes a perfect balance between elegance and power.

This wine is a true accomplishment for the 2011 vintage. While it can be enjoyed now, it will benefit from further aging. With its beautiful aromas, complex flavors, and impressive structure, the 2011 Rauzan-Segla is a wine that will continue to evolve and offer ample pleasure for another two decades or more.
