Segla 2015 Margaux by Chateau Rauzan-Segla
From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Segla is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, and a "seasoning" of 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, representing just over half the total crop, matured in 25% new wood. It has a fragrant, very precise bouquet with mineral-rich, very pure blackberry, blueberry and cold flint-like aromas. There is wonderful tension here for a deuxième vin. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy opening, just a tingle of spice on the tip of the tongue. There is very fine tension here, moderate weight but great persistence and sense of energy on the finish. On a budget? Thinking of a second wine? Look no further." 90-92 points
Segla is the second wine for Chateau Rauzan-Segla, a second growth estate from the classification of 1855. Its parent wine regularly garners 100 points. This label offers a chance to taste wine from a top tier producer at a more approachable price point.
