Description

Chateau Rauzan SeglaRauzan Ségla was once part of a much larger estate alongside its sibling Chateau Rauzan Gassies created by Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan in 1661 (he was the manager of Premier Crus Châteaux Margaux and Latour). By the end of the 18th century, the wines of Rauzan Ségla had acquired an outstanding reputation and were considered amongst the greatest crus; a belief endorsed by Thomas Jefferson, later President of the USA. He ordered 10 cases of Rauzan in 1790 and recorded the Chateau as the finest of the Second Growths.

Rauzan Ségla’s wines were indisputably acknowledged as second only to those of Château Margaux and in 1855 their excellent reputation was officially recognised when it was placed at the top of a short list of the finest Médoc – number two, right after Chateau Mouton Rothschild. The Chateau has been owned by the Wertheimer Group, best known as the owners of the perfume Chanel, since 1994. The Wertheimer family installed a wine making team led by David Orr from Chateau Latour and John Kolasa. Their renovation of the Chateau has lead to a full renaissance of this great estate.

Chateau Rauzan SeglaCritics Scores:  Robert Parker 93 points:
“On the same qualitative level as this estate’s brilliant 2005, but with slightly less sucrosite, this blend exhibits a 1986-like personality ,a very successful vintage at Rauzan Segla. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of bay leaf, black currants, licorice, truffles, and a touch of toast, dazzling fruit, and plenty of ripe, but not astringent tannin. This is a medium to full-bodied, classic, pure, surprisingly approachable Rauzan Segla that will be at its finest between 2012-2025+.”
