Celebrating 350 years with the release of the 2009 vintage, Rauzan Segla is a second growth estate in Margaux planted to 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, with vines averaging 30 years. The estate can trace its history back to 1661, when the vineyard was created by Pierre des Mesures de Rauzan, who at the time was also the owner of the vineyards that now make up Pichon Lalande and Pichon Baron. Robert Parker is a fan of Rauzan Segla and considers it a classic example of Margaux: 'Today, the quality of recent wines puts this estate clearly in the elite group of Bordeaux super-seconds.'

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Chateau Rauzan-Segla has a very fruity warm blackcurrant and blackberry preserve nose over hints of lilacs, cedar, cloves and cinnamon stick. Full bodied, rich and seductively fruited in the mouth, it has a solid foundation to support with a high level of velvety tannins and refreshing acid, finishing long.

Wine EnthusiastA rich and opulent wine, very ripe, packed with luscious blackberry and damson fruit as well as sweet tannins. It is a fruit salad of fruit flavors given structure by a core of dryness. Already a gorgeous wine, but one that will also age.

Wine SpectatorA very toasty style, with lots of caressing plum sauce, melted licorice and warm fig flavors splayed out over polished, rounded structure. Picks up some grip and tar on the finish, but stays clearly on the modern side, with its noticeable reliance on toast. Best from 2014 through 2026. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 10,000 cases made.
