Brighter fruit and a bit more richness than many wines in Margaux. Fresh red fruit, less bitter extract than some with a good lightness and balance. A hint of cigar box on the palate. Tannins are nice and ripe.

Rauzan Segla

Château Rauzan-Ségla is one of a trio of Bordeaux estates owned by the fashion house Chanel (along with Château Canon and Chateau Berliquet. Rauzan-Ségla is a Margaux 2éme Grand Cru Classé (“Second Growth”) estate. Although it dates from 1661, for many years this property did not produce wine worthy of a Second Growth, but everything changed in 1994 when Rauzan-Ségla was acquired by the owners of the Chanel fashion house. The new owners began a vast investment programme, hiring Peter Marino to restore the historic château. Smaller vats were introduced to match each parcel for precise vinification and new sorting allowed every grape to be examined. The vineyard comprises 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The newer plantings feature more Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and the addition of Petit Verdot. While much of their vines are on the Cantenac plateau, they also have vines close to the village of Margaux. Slightly more than half their vineyard is well placed, directly adjacent to the château. They also have vines close to Chateau Margaux and not far from Brane Cantenac.
