A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 36% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot with 13% vin de presse the Rauzan Segla was cropped between 8th and 28th September at just 28hl/ha caused by hail damage in early June. The nose is nicely defined with crisp blackberry with fine minerality with hints of orange blossom emerging with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with silky smooth tannins very cohesive with a pleasing sense of tension. This shows very satisfying purity and femininity with excellent persistency towards the finish. Excellent.

The grand vin, the 2011 Rauzan Segla, is a beauty. Aromas of spring flowers, graphite, creme de cassis and kirsch jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored 2011. Lots of nobility, complexity and richness... The grand vin, the 2011 Rauzan Segla, is a beauty. Aromas of spring flowers, graphite, creme de cassis and kirsch jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored 2011. Lots of nobility, complexity and richness characterize a wine that could be mistaken for a first-growth in 2011. This medium to full-bodied, concentrated, gorgeously pure, well-balanced beauty should be forgotten for 2-4 years and drunk over the following 15-20. Kudos to administrator John Kolasa and his team. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

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.

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 vineyards comprise 75 hectares on gravel soils with about 50% planted at a density of 10000 vines per hectare. Opaque color throughout. The alluring bouquet displays aromas of black cherry boysenberry and kirsch as well as an enticingly rich mocha chocolate note. Cassis flavors dominate the palate along with hints of cocoa baking spices and confectionary sugar. Good structure leads to a tightly wound finish. Well done. Enjoy from 2017-2030. Tasted twice.
