The Story

The work in the vineyard at Rauzan-Ségla is carried out plot by plot, plant by plant. The harvest is performed with the same painstaking care as the other tasks throughout the year. Each step is approached with the same attention to detail, from the picking to the production of the new wine.

Each vintage must be considered unique and be treated as such, demanding a renewed attention and making any attempt at an annual routine quite impossible. At Rauzan Ségla, nothing is left to chance, adapting to each year’s weather conditions and bringing out the best characteristics of the vintage. Not a day goes by without the technical team roaming up and down the rows of vines, tasting the grapes and judging their readiness. It is their expert palates that will dictate the harvest dates for each plot. This decision is primordial and carries with it the very style of the property. Precision and delicatesse are required if we are to pick grapes that are both ripe and fresh-tasting. When the signal is finally given the grapes are picked by hand with the greatest care. After a first selection by the picker, the bunches are placed in small six-kilo individual crates to avoid any crushing. They are then transported to the cellar to be sorted.

Written Notes

Chateau Rauzan-Segla: Floral and aromatic. Fresh and vibrant with lots of red berries, red plum and yet not over powerful. The wine was pure and clean with fineness, complexity, high acidity and velvet tannin. Medium long length. I just loved this wine. 94-95+
  • 95p
Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Aromatic nose with elegant character, blackcurrants and red berries, discreet oak spices. On the palate well structured with firm but mature tannins, fine fruit, convincing length and elegant finish. Very discreet presence of oak.
  • 95p
Deep colour. Fresh dark berry cassis, liquorice with cedar notes, Substantial buoyant wine with wonderful density fruit power, chocolaty tannins and balanced new oak notes. Finishes chocolaty, al-dente firm. Very good wine. 96 points
