Fantastic aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and strawberries follow through to a full body, super-integrated tannins and an extremely long finish. The bright acidity gives the wine a linear edge that focuses in all the fruit. Minerally.
This is a full-bodied wine, from one of the leading estates in Margaux. It is ripe with juicy blackberry and black-currant fruits. This fruit contrasts with the dark tannins and powerful structure. It is going to develop slowly and impressively to be ready to drink from 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
The 2014 Rauzan-Ségla is just as impeccable from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, perfumed and nuanced in the glass, the wine exudes finesse. Expressive floral notes, spice and succulent red/purplish stone fruits are all beautifully delineated. In 2014, Rauzan-Ségla is a wine of understated class with the potential to improve for several decades. (AG)
The 2014 Rauzan-Ségla is a beautiful wine, and well worth seeking out, especially given the more than reasonable prices it can be found at in the market. A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it shows the classic, understated style of the vintage. Ripe blueberry and cassis fruit along with subtle vanilla cream, cedarwood, scorched earth and spice are present in this medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, seamless 2014 that really blossoms with time in the glass. The tannins are prominent yet sweet, it’s impeccably balanced, and has a great finish. Give bottles 3-4 years (you can certainly enjoy this today with a decant) and enjoy over the following two-plus decades.
The 2014 Rauzan-Segla has a very pure, mineral-driven bouquet that could almost be from the Côte de Nuits! This is as refined as you will discover in Margaux. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, caressing and smooth in texture with well-judged acidity and fanning out with crushed strawberry, Morello and a touch of orange rind on the finish. It is not patch on the 2015 for sure, but it is a worthy forerunner. (NM)
This has a lightly firm singed alder frame, which works well with the core of dark currant and plum fruit, melding easily with a velvety back end that lets alluring black tea and anise notes emerge steadily. A bit flashy in style, but will certainly have fans. (JM)
Dark crimson. Lifted and racy on the nose. Aérien, as they say. Quite ethereal. Far from heavy but sappy and appetising and well balanced. Really quite subtle. Attractively dry, but not drying, finish. Archetypal claret that lingers on the palate. The acid is only just not dominant, mind you. 17/20 points
