Truly one of the estate’s most exceptional vintages, the Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2018 impresses with its density and remarkable ripeness. After rainy weather in winter and spring, the sunshine of the summer and autumn months allowed the harvest to proceed with calm. At Chateau Rauzan-Segla, the harvest began on September 27 and ended on October 11.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (40%), Petit Verdot (2%) and Cabernet Franc (2%), the Chateau Rauzan-Ségla 2018 offers a bewitching aromatic bouquet. With notes of red fruits, followed by delicious black fruits, black cherries and strawberries, the wine evolves tobacco and dark licorice aromas. Then come the delicate floral notes of violet and invigorating citrus, especially red grapefruit. On the palate, the wine spreads out slowly but fully, offering a dense texture and developing fruity flavors. The vintage maintains a perfect balance, without any sensation of heaviness. A great vintage for Chateau Rauzan-Segla.
