The elegance and power of a fine red wine from Margaux

The estate
A Grand Cru Classe of Margaux, Chateau Rauzan-Segla is a prestigious Bordeaux estate with an exciting history. For 350 years, Rauzan-Segla has sought to express a certain precision in their wines as a product of centuries of savoir-faire. A Second Classified Growth of 1855, Chateau Rauzan-Segla is one of the most prestigious references of the Margaux appellation.

The vineyard
The 37-year-old vines of the estate cover 70 hectares. In the heart of the Margaux appellation, the Chateau Rauzan-Segla vineyard is planted in fine, deep clayey gravel typical of the Margaux appellation.

The vintage
2019 will be remembered at Rauzan-Segla for the elegance of the wines. After a mild, dry winter followed by a cool, wet spring, summer 2019 was very dry and hot. The autumn rains of mid-September helped avoid significant water stress for the vines, by allowing for a longer ripening process.

The winemaking
Manual plot-by-plot harvest in crates. Plot and intra-plot vinification with gravity-fed vatting, in thermoregulated stainless steel vats.

The aging
18 months in French oak barrels, 60% of which are new oak with medium and a medium-long toast. Racking “à l’esquive.” Fining with egg whites in barrels.

Grape varieties planted
Cabernet sauvignon (62%), merlot (35,5%), petit verdot (2%), cabernet franc (0,5%).

The tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2019 is already revealing the class and elegance of a very fine red wine from Margaux. Classic but not entirely classic, this great vintage ending in -9 has an intense aromatic bouquet, combining floral fragrances of iris, notes of ripe black fruit like morello cherry and even some spices. The palate is refined and sophisticated, expressing the signature characteristics of the great Margaux terroir, with a deliciously mouth-coating texture and silky aromatic profile. With great power and liveliness, the vintage stretches forth on a very long finish, leaving behind a palate-coating impression, full of mystery. A remarkable Rauzan-Segla.
