Chateau Rauzan-Segla, Margaux 2017 (WA 96)

Grape(s)        :  62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot

 Description  : 

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Rauzan-Ségla rocks up with vibrant notions of cherry pie, warm cassis, blackberry preserves and red roses with hints of cinnamon stick and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely filled with wonderfully pure red and black fruits, framed by firm, very ripe, fine-grained tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy. Yum! "(LPB)  (3/2020) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Rich, tight and deep, this wine has been extremely well handled in a vintage that suits this elegant style. There isn't the depth and complexity of expression that was seen in the previous two vintages, but it gets across the signature of the estate in an earlier drinking form - the absolute essence of what you want in a trickier vintage. If priced well, it's a buy. (JA) " (4/2018) 93 points Decanter
