One of Thomas Jefferson’s most beloved Bordeaux producers. Purchased by Chanel in the late nineties this wine has undergone some significant changes over the years, not the least of which is an increase of Cabernet Sauvignon to the blend and 50-60 percent brand new oak. So generous on the nose, makes your palate water simply smelling it. Coco, dates, black currant and cigar box. Firm texture, weighty with a swipe of wood and fruit tannin. Big but showing very forward even now. Sexy and assertive. Gorgeous wine.
“The grand vin, the 2011 Rauzan Segla, is a beauty. Aromas of spring flowers, graphite, crème de cassis and kirsch jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored 2011. Lots of nobility, complexity and richness characterize a wine that could be mistaken for a first-growth in 2011. This medium to full-bodied, concentrated, gorgeously pure, well-balanced beauty should be forgotten for 2-4 years and drunk over the following 15-20.”
