Winemaker's Notes:

"Medium ruby. Sexy aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice and mint. Sweet, broad and pliant, with black fruit and bitter chocolate flavors nicely framed by juicy acidity. Finishes with ripe, spreading tannins. This is impressive for Bordeaux Superieur."
-International Wine Cellar 87-90
My Notes:

About Ch. Rauzan-Despagne:

In the 17th Century this wine estate’s buildings were used as a hunting lodge, before being converted into a magnificent summer residence by a Bordeaux wine trader. Nowadays, the vines surrounding the Chateau are just a fifteen-minute drive from Bordeaux city centre.

Our Reserve range will introduce you to a new generation of Bordeaux wines. Great aromatic purity, loads of fruit, smoothness and easy drinking are to be expected.
