Case of 12 x 75cl
A quiet brooding nose opens out slowly to reveal ripe red fruits, a little spice and perfume. There is lots of detail and precision here and a carefully controlled expression rather than a rush to please. On the palate, the refined approach continues but with impressive underlying power and drivem, moving the wine forward with quiet confidence. This is not a flashy wine but rather one that is very comfortable in its own skin. Great stuff. Drink 2019-2030+. 17
Reviews & Scores
"Shows a lovely concentration of currant and blackberry. Hints of vanilla follow through to a full body, with layers of ripe fruit and fine, fruit-coated tannins. I love the ripe and pretty fruit to this. Very fruit-forward. The château cut back on the new wood, and went for a fruitier style. I like that."
J.S. 93-96 Wine Spectator
"Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Rauzan-Ségla bursts from the glass with bold, vivacious Black Forest cake, blackberry pie and warm blueberry scents plus nuances of cardamom, candied violets, smoked meats and Chinese five spice with a waft of dusty soil. Full-bodied, rich, plush and decadent, it completely coats the palate with densely packed preserved black berries layers, finishing very long and spicy."
