Description

Château Rauzan-Ségla has a long and interesting history dating all the way back to 1661. On September 7, Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan became the new owner of The Noble House of Gassies, from the de Gascq family. At the time, Pierre de Rauzan was well versed in the Bordeaux wine world. He was already the manager of Château Margaux. He remained with Château Margaux for 2 more years before joining Rauzan Segla full time. 

'Deep garnet colored, the 2011 Rauzan-Ségla displays a series of earthy notes to begin—truffles, moss-covered bark, fungi and tilled soil—over a core of redcurrant jelly, blackberry pie and mincemeat with hints of sandalwood, new leather and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied with a firm line of chewy, slightly rustic tannins, it has a great core of earth-laced black fruits with provocative freshness and a long mineral-tinged finish.

The blend this year is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, harvested between September 8th and 28th, at an average yield of 28 hectoliters per hectare. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, 70% new. The alcohol is 13.5%, and the pH is 3.33.' 92pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, RobertParker.com, drink 2020 - 2039
