Chateau Rauzan Segla deuxieme cru is situated on the Margaux appellation. This delicate and classical 2006 vintage displays a great color. The nose exudes floral and jam notes. To the palate, the tannins are refined and the finish is long. The particular vivacity gives charm to this wine. Chateau Rauzan Segla 2006 reveals a great and precise body. This Margaux is straight and charismatic.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Rauzan-Ségla has a sous-bois and sandalwood-scented bouquet with a light mahogany bureau scent developing soon after. The nose is open and inviting. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and bestowed with greater fruit concentration than the nose suggests: blackberry, raspberry mixed with sage, cedar and a touch of sea salt. As usual, this Rauzan-Séglas has a surfeit of personality and while it might not be a contender for the longest-lived Margaux, it is the kind of Left Bank 2006 that you welcome at the dinner table. Tasted January 2016.
