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 (cherriesblackberries) and spices (pink peppercorn). The nose also has notes of balsamicgrilled coffeenutmegmint and chocolate. On the palate, Rauzan-Segla 2016 is complexdense, and precise. A wine of great balance. 

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
