The Nobleness and Elegance of an Exceptional Margaux
With its true mosaic of terroirs, the vineyard of this Chanel Group property enjoys a privileged location in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde estuary, which allows it to benefit from a unique combination of clay-limestone soils, deep gravel and fine gravel. The richesse of this exceptional terroir lends a nobleness and class like none other to the wines of Rauzan-Segla, which stand out with a certain depth and wisdom gained over the years.
Delicate notes of summer fruit evoke the fresh and sweet strawberry, supple figs and dried fruits deliciously spiced with cinnamon sticks, then evolving scents of dried rose petals and tobacco... Complex, and sophisticated, the aromatic bouquet reveals an absolute grace. Tender and noble, the palate delivers a caressing and velvety texture, guided by an accurate and straightforward structure. The pace of the wine continues into a persistent and seemingly endless finish. Truly a great Margaux.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot and sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2017 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) has a profound nose of cassis, warm blackberries and black plums with touches of baking spices, violets, mocha and smoke plus a waft of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied with a great core of sustained, energetic black fruit, a frame of fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, it finishes with great length.
