  • Product Description

    Winemaker Notes
    About half of the 52 hectares of vineyard are around the château, but there are additional parcels near Margaux and Brane-Cantenac. The plantings are comprised of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc with an average vine age of 30 years and a yield of 32 hl/ha. Soils at Rauzan-Ségla are composed of deep, fine gravel which makes for natural irrigation
    After hand harvesting and a double sorting, the fruit is gently crushed and then delivered to stainless tanks by gravity-flow where the fermentation begins. Alcoholic fermentation in lasted eight days with pump overs two or three times a day. Malolactic fermentation mostly occurred in vat, but a few wines were done in barrel. The wine was aged in 20% new French oak barrels. 

    Tasting Notes
    Deep ruby in apperance, Segla delivers aromas of blueberry and vanilla on the nose. On the palate it is medium bodied with silky tannins.

    94: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 2012 Rauzan-Ségla (54.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 1.5% Petit Verdot) is a classic Rauzan-Ségla, still relatively backward and tannic, but concentrated and extremely promising. Dense blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit along with some licorice, vanilla, foresty notes and spice are all present in this full-bodied yet structured and big, beefy style of Rauzan-Ségla . It may turn out to be somewhat atypical for this château in its size and masculine structure, but this is impressive wine, and one of the great successes of the vintage. Give it 5-7 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.
    Rating: 94+

    93: James Suckling
    A full and silky wine with a slightly hollow center-palate now but it’s very pretty and chewy. Needs two or three years to soften. Very persistent and structured.

    91: Wine Spectator
    A toasty, fleshy style, with a cocoa note pulling and pushing the core of blackberry, black currant and plum fruit. Picks up more range through the finish, with black tea, alder and loam accents, boding well for cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2024.
