The outstanding Château Rauzan-Ségla makes structured, muscular red Bordeaux in the most classic style. Full-bodied and tannic, with a long, very dry finish, these wines have impeccable Cabernet Sauvignon character and flavor extraction. They can be rather aggressive and hard to comprehend when young. With age, however, their cigar box, cassis, floral and spice aromas are accompanied by equally intense flavors. The result is a perfectly balanced, memorably complex wine that is truly world class. Maturity for most vintages is reached between seven and thirty years, but many years live much longer.

Wine AdvocateOn the same qualitative level as this estate's brilliant 2005, but with slightly less sucrosite, this blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, exhibits a 1986-like personality ,a very successful vintage at Rauzan Segla. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of bay leaf, black currants, licorice, truffles, and a touch of toast, dazzling fruit, and plenty of ripe, but not astringent tannin. This is a medium to full-bodied, classic, pure, surprisingly approachable Rauzan Segla that will be at its finest between 2012-2025+.

Wine EnthusiastA big, ripe chocolate-flavored wine with spice, new wood and a smooth, polished character. It is rich, with black currant jelly flavors, but this richness is balanced with a lively freshness and subtlety in its tannins. The finish is long, the flavors echoing the perfumes on the nose.

Wine SpectatorRaspberry, violet and blueberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft, refined tannins and a long finish. Such finesse and precision. Best from 2014 through 2020.
