Chateau Rauzan Segla 2012 (0.375L)
- Bordeaux Blend Red
- Red Wine
Chateau Rauzan-Segla is a second growth from Margaux, Bordeaux, as set out in the 1855 classification of Medoc and Graves. The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend is rich and concentrated, and is often considered one of the best of the second growths. The chateau was initially founded under the name Domaine de Rauzan in 1661 by Pierre Desmezures, an important figure in Bordeaux's history who, at the time, also owned chateaux Margaux and Latour. Eventually, the property came under the control of the Baroness of Segla, Catherin de Rauzan, who named it Rauzan-Segla for herself. In 1994, the estate was bought by fashion giant Chanel, which also owns Chateau Canon in Bordeaux and St Supery in Napa.
New leather, cigar box and stewed tea over a core of blackcurrant cordial, plum preserves and blueberry compote with touches of cumin seed and fenugreek. Medium-bodied, the palate has a lot of spritely zip with red fruit accents lifting the mature savory and spice notes, framed by grainy tannins, finishing with great tension. -WA This is a half bottle wine.
