    ”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."Neal Martin

    ”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." Robert Parker

    ”The grand vin, the 2011 Rauzan Segla, is a beauty. Aromas of spring flowers, graphite, creme de cassis and kirsch jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored 2011. Lots of nobility, complexity and richness characterize a wine that could be mistaken for a first-growth in 2011. This medium to full-bodied, concentrated, gorgeously pure, well-balanced beauty should be forgotten for 2-4 years and drunk over the following 15-20. Kudos to administrator John Kolasa and his team."

    ”A classic Margaux, this blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon and 43% Merlot reveals a dense plum/blue/purple color in addition to a sumptuous perfume of subtle new oak interwoven with underbrush, black currants, black raspberries, spring flowers, and a hint of dusty, loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied with sweet but abundant tannin, and beautiful purity, texture and equilibrium, the 2009 Rauzan Segla will provide enjoyable drinking over the next three decades." Robert Parker

    ”The 2008 Rauzan-Segla (62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot) was made from 45% of the production. It is a beautiful wine in this vintage, not nearly as powerful and structured as the 2010, but it has complex notes of sweet red and black fruits, unsmoked cigar tobacco, spice box and a hint of very subtle wood. The complex perfume is followed by a dark ruby/plum-colored wine with beautifully sweet tannins, a silky, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish." Robert Parker

    ”Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) has a wonderful bouquet of dark red brambly fruit, sandalwood, sage and cloves—aromatics that convey a sense of warmth and homeliness. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannin on the entry; there is truffle-infused black fruit, sea salt and a healthy pinch of spice, leading to a refined, almost Pomerol-like finish. The acidity feels a little lower than other coeval vintages, affording it a sense of approachability, almost "easy-drinking" in nature. Delicious—that sums this Margaux up in a word." Neal Martin

    ”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."

    ”Estate manager John Kolasa nailed the 2005 Château Rausan Segla. It's rapidly blossoming into one of the best wines from the estate in recent memory. Time has nurtured a gorgeous bouquet that leans slightly more to red berry fruit, intermingling with iris and rose petals, veins of cedar and fresh mint. It is bursting at the seams with fruité while all the time retaining wonderful delineation and control. The palate follows in a similar vein. It feels plush in the mouth, adorned with a satin texture, yet this is complemented by finesse and refinement. It gradually builds in the mouth to a sensual finish that epitomizes this great Margaux estate. You might well be able to broach this 2005 now. It has more approachability than some of its peers, though there is the substance to guarantee two decades and more of drinking pleasure." Neal Martin

    ”A very strong, powerful wine with an opaque ruby/purple color and a tight but promising bouquet of black currants intermixed with iron, smoke, licorice, and dried herbs, this muscular, very masculine, brawny wine seems built for the long haul. Will it ever shed all of its tannin? Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018." Robert Parker
