Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2016: A complex and dense Margaux

Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2016 is a 2nd Classified Growth from the Margaux appellation. The vineyard sprawls over 70 hectares with vines that are, on average, 37 years old. The soil is composed of a gravel, and clay mixture. Chateau Rauzan-Segla is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Wine is aged in barrels (60% are new) for 18 months.

2016 experienced exceptional weather conditions. After a very hot and dry summer, autumn's cool temperatures helped the grapes mature. A rain spell just before harvest also helped. Harvest took place on September 20th to October 15th.

Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2016 developed aromas of black fruits (cherries, blackberries) and spices (pink peppercorn). The nose also has notes of balsamic, grilled coffee, nutmeg, mint and chocolate. On the palate, Rauzan-Segla 2016 is complex, dense, and precise. A wine of great balance.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Rauzan-Ségla is blended of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 60% new and 40% one-year-old barrels for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of lifted red and black cherries, black raspberries and cassis with a rose hip tea and lilacs undercurrent plus sparks of tobacco, pencil shavings and tilled earth. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and mineral laced with firm, fine-grained tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing with great length and depth.
