A huge, powerful, dense wine, which layers pure black fruits over dusty tannins. This is an impressive wine, proof of Rauzan-Ségla's improvements since Chanel took over ownership. It is packed with fruits, like an intense jelly, but also has dryness, acidity and good aging potential. (RV)
Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a very tight bouquet with blackberry, briary, cedar and cigar box all nicely defined but unfurling slowly in the glass. I like the purity and clarity to this wine. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a slight meatiness on the entry, building nicely across towards the back palate with good backbone and a subtle savoury note towards the finish. Superb.

Beautiful aromas of spices, berries and plums follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with very fine tannins and a pretty, delicious finish. All in finesse. Best after 2008. (JS)
