Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Loved this…had with great foodie friends in CT who know how to pick wine. Tenderloins and salad were consumed but I would have been happy with just the wine for dinner. — a month ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

Mature but not declining yet. Bordeaux from the old days, red fruits, cedar, dust and some green notes. Only 12,5% gives it lightweight character. — 6 months ago

The right order with our Porterhouses. Still has the Margaux elegance presence but, lacks the quality of fruit & characteristics of the 06 Rauzan-Segla.

Not the best vintage I’ve had from Lascombes. Interesting as this was a warm vintage. All my previous 2003’s have shown bright, ripe fruit. The fruits were dull & lacked freshness which, is very different than the other 03’s I’ve had to this point. I don’t know if the staff trimmed too much canopy and the fruit got too much heat and UV light, therefore losing freshness along with a lack of water during the season.

This will still drink well for another 5-8 years before it declines. Our Porterhouses helped contribute to a better experience masking some of its shortcomings.

The wine showed dull, dark fruit with more earthiness than expected given its evolution from its bottle age. Dry soil & clay, stones, dry forest floor, dry tobacco, used leather and withering & dark flowers. The acidity was pleasant but not up to par. The finish lacked Margaux beauty but, it did pop up here and there. Just no consistency. The fruit was flat and lots of dry earth on the long set. Not bad just no up to what I expect from Lascombes and the vintage.

Porquerolles Côtes de Provence Rosé Grenache Blend 2019

Pretty excited to be getting the 2020 to sell anyday. Just tried the 2019 and really loved it. Got to listen to the winemaker. Amazing! He is also the winemaker for Chateau Rauzan Segla and Chateau Canon. Really cool. Looking forward to the 2020! — 4 months ago

Château Rauzan Despagne

Grand Vin Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

No obvious signs of aging at 18 as its dark purple in the glass. Smooth tannins a medium finish with notes of dark fruits. Bought upon release and “forgotten”. A real gem. — 6 months ago

I quite like this as an easy drinking white- jasmine, tart apple, maybe some kind of stone fruit? Wish I had more of it! — 7 months ago

Château Rauzan-Gassies

Deuxieme Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

2000 vintage. Amazing. Special birthday wine and it showed all the right early and late notes. Fun tannins to start but the blackberry and nutmeg came through as the wine opened up. Chase this vintage in Bordeaux. It’s worth it. — 8 months ago
