Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1996 Rauzan-Segla now at 20 years of age has an airy, perfumed bouquet with wilted rose petals, undergrowth and dried orange peel scents. What it lacks is a sense of presence. Perhaps it is enduring a dumb phase? The palate is much better than the aromatics, showing fine balance and crisp tannins. The acidity is well judged and lends this Margaux plenty of freshness and it unfurls on the finish with white pepper, cedar and sea salt notes that linger long in the mouth. What starts as a modest wine ends really rather lovely and it should continue to give a decade or two of more drinking pleasure. Tasted July 2016.
