    Ségla du Château Rauzan Ségla, Margaux, 2015

    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Ségla du Château Rauzan Ségla, Margaux, 2015

    Produced from 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Segla is an outstanding example from this high flying second growth. Margaux was arguably the appellation of the vintage, producing sumptuous, graceful wines with power and charm in equal measure. We love the sleek fruit and the purity here. Waves of crème de mûre and floral cassis delight the palate. There’s a real generosity to the fruit; a lavish, creamy texture, which coats the mouth. Although delightful and exceptionally moreish right now, this has so much fruit and such impeccably crafted tannins, we’re sure this will age gracefully for a decade or more.

    Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2015 Segla bursts with notes of black cherries, redcurrant jelly, and juicy blackberries, plus hints of dried mint and dark chocolate. The medium to full-bodied palate is coated with bright black fruits plus grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with lovely purity.

    The 2015 Ségla reveals baked cherries, hoisin and light cedar aromas on the nose, which is tightly wound at first but gains intensity with aeration. The oak is neatly integrated. The very well-balanced, medium-bodied palate features firm tannin, commendable purity, smooth texture and just a touch of white pepper and graphite toward the persistent finish. This is a classy Margaux to add to many others. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

    Château Rauzan Ségla

    Bought by the Wertheimer brothers of the fashion house, Chanel, in 1994, Rauzan Segla has slowly undergone a transformation under the astute leadership of John Kolasa. Prior to the Chanel ownership, grapes were harvested by machine with no sorting tables and foot pressed before being fermented in enormous vats with little to no temperature control. Since 1994, new machinery, investment in the chai, combined with harvesting by hand and much greater selection in the vineyard have brought this 2nd growth estate into the 21st century as one of the foremost Margaux properties.

    Since Nicolas Audebert’s arrival in 2014, this chateau has experienced a renaissance. Building on the great work of John Kolasa, Nicola and his team have produced a sequence of polished, beautifully balanced Margaux. Not only is Rauzan Segla now firmly established as one of the top wines of this appellation, it is now consistently amongst the best performing wines of the whole Medoc. Although very much within the “super second” echelon in terms of quality, it doesn’t come with a “super second” price tag (for the time being), making it one of the most sought-after wines en primeur.
