Segla, Margaux, Bordeaux 2010

Segla is the second wine of Château Rauzan-Ségla which is considered one of the best of the second growth Bordeaux, coming right after Chateau Margaux and Chateau Palmer in Margaux.

These 2010's are stored in the cellars of Chateau Rauzan Ségla until recently released. Genuinely outstanding vintage from an excellent producer (owned by Chanel, no-expense-spared winemaking in their excellent vineyards) and simply incredible value for money. Wonderful to drink now and can be stored decades longer. Pure, elegant and balanced.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

93 points, James Suckling
"Extremely attractive aromas of currants, raspberries and blueberries follow through to a full body with silky tannins, and a beautiful balance and fruit, tannin and acidity harmony. Wonderful second wine from Rauzan-Segla. Try in 2017"
17 points, Jancis Robinson
Deep crimson. Perfumed, rich, sweet and tea leaves. Really it approaches the grand vin in terms of quality. Excellent balance and just a little less long lived. But very persistent. Drink 2018-2028 

93 Points Decanter

Beautifully elegant fruit is present on the nose. Supple mid-palate and clear ageing ability as the tannins are still young. Acidity is well balanced, and there is real grip on the palate. Black fruits, liquorice and wet stone texture. Drinking window 2017 - 2030. — Blind tasted by Jane Anson, Sebastian Payne MW and Steven Spurrier

The second wine, the 2010 Segla, is also delicious. It is relatively similar in blend to the grand vin, with just slightly more Cabernet Sauvignon and less Merlot, but it is deep, dense, with loads of ripe black currant, earthy, foresty fruit along with hints of underbrush and spice box. Medium to full-bodied and fresh, with light tannin, it should drink nicely for 15-20 years.

A stunning wine from Rauzan Segla, kudos go to administrator John Kolasa for turning out this profound wine, which should prove to be a timeless classic from the appellation of Margaux.

90 points, Neal Martin for Robert Parker-Wine Advocate

"The Segla serves up a cornucopia of lush red berry fruit laced with dried rose petals and candied orange peel. With aeration, there are scents of vanilla coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and plenty of crisp, fresh, dark fruit laced with black tea and a little spice. It is a very composed Segla with a long finish. One of the often over-looked second wines that certainly in this vintage should not be overlooked."
