En Primeur Chateau Rauzan Segla 2016 is now available for sale
Rauzan-Segla is a 2éme Cru Classé located in Margaux. Great wines were produced in the 1990s made with a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon as well as was new oak in order to create deeper and generous wine. Today the property is owned by Chanel.
“The 2016 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot picked between 20 September and 15 October at 45 hectoliters per hectare. The wine is being aged in 60% new oak for 18 months. It has 13.2% alcohol. It has a very powerful and intense bouquet with layers of blackberry, kirsch, cedar and a touch of mint. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of fruit concentration: layers of ripe blackberry and boysenberry, segueing into what feels like a very spicy and peppery second half that seems to calm down and attain more nuance with aeration in the glass. It is a wonderful follow-up to the 2015 last year, although not quite with the same audacity and bravado. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Drink 2022-2050”. – 95/97pts Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, April 2017
