Critical Acclaim

"Complex aromas of dried citrus fruit, with very ripe plums and currants. Full and very dense, with lots of beautiful fruit and super velvety tannins. This is really long and caressing, with intense structure. A gorgeous wine. Muscular and powerful. Made for the long term. Try in 2020. "
97 Points

"A 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.
Cellar Selection"
95 Points

"A classic Margaux, this blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon and 43% Merlot reveals a dense plum/blue/purple color in addition to a sumptuous perfume of subtle new oak interwoven with underbrush, black currants, black raspberries, spring flowers, and a hint of dusty, loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied with sweet but abundant tannin, and beautiful purity, texture and equilibrium, the 2009 Rauzan Segla will provide enjoyable drinking over the next three decades.
Rating: 93+"
93 Points

"A 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. "
92 Points

"Bright red-ruby. Lively aromas and flavors of boysenberry, violet, chocolate and spicy oak. Juicy, sweet and elegant, with sound acidity and a firm spine of tannins keeping the wine's fruit under wraps now. Not an opulent style for the vintage; in fact, this solidly structured Margaux is tough going today. Finishes chewy and chocolatey, with noteworthy persistence. I'd cellar this for at least seven or eight years; it should enjoy a slow evolution in bottle.
Rating: 91(+?)"
91 Points

"This wine's ripeness shows in candied scents of cassis while sandy tannins build the savory side of the flavor. With air, the wine gains luscious richness, a sleek, finely crafted Bordeaux that will need time to show its distinctions."

He thus became a fervent admirer or Rauzan-Segla wines. Some decades later, the 1855 Classification ranked Chateau Rauzan-Segla as a Second Growth. The current chateau was built in...

Learn About Margaux

(mahr-GOH) Silky Smooth Soft, elegant, feminine… these are words often used to describe the wines of Margaux. The commune is different from its northern neighbors of the Haut-Medoc in both geography and style. Home to the name-sharing premier cru, Margaux lays a few marshlands south of St.-Julien. Notable Facts As in other Medoc appellations, Cabernet Sauvignon leads the...
