    The density of a bewitching Margaux Grand Cru Classe

    A great vintage for the Bordeaux region, 2018 is a year that will remain in the memory of the prestigious Margaux Grand Cru Classe, Chateau Rauzan-Segla.

    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.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2018 Rauzan-Ségla is blended of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from September 27 to October 11; Merlot from September 13-27; Cabernet Franc on September 28; and Petit Verdot from September 28-29. The wine has 14% alcohol and aging is anticipated to be 18 months in barriques, 65% new. Deep purple-black in color, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of warm plums, crème de cassis, Black Forest cake and candied violets with hints of mocha, Indian spices and fragrant earth plus a waft of crushed rocks. Full-bodied, multilayered and sporting a lot of freshness and tension in the mouth in spite of all its decadent perfumed black fruits, it has a firm, finely grained frame and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Seduction in a glass.
