Château Rauzan Gassies

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Awkward but with signs of greatness shining through. Couldn’t pinpoint exactly a flaw, just not in harmony, but the pieces were there. Red cherry, strawberry, oaky vanilla tannins and graphite. Maybe it was the superior ‘90 at its side? — a month ago

I have a bottle of the 90. Can’t bring myself to storm it!

Hey Ron - this was a perfectly stored (I know the cellar) bottle, purchased en primeur. Don’t keep it much longer, PnP when you open it.

Château Brane-Cantenac


Delectable Wine

The 1961 Brane-Cantenac is a wine that I have been lucky enough to taste three or four times before. It’s a wonderful 1961 that comes racing out of the blocks, displaying vestiges of red fruit, autumn leaves, mint, chlorophyll and blood orange on the nose. It just feels multifaceted and more complex than the 1959, even if it does not quite reveal the same vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and impressive concentration. It is maybe a little rustic in style but certainly shows more depth and concentration than the 1961 Rauzan-Sègla that I tasted a month earlier. There is a touch of Earl Grey and tobacco lingering on the finish. Maybe this is in gradual decline, since it does not match the stellar bottle tasted back in 2010, yet it remains a great Margaux. Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the château. (Neal Martin, Vinous, January 2019) — 7 months ago

Margaux Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

From half bottle this is the 2nd wine of 2nd Growth Rauzan Segla from Margaux. Lovely nose showing it appears a high Merlot influence. Cedar box and silky mouthfeel. Fine persistent tannins. I found this more developed than expected but a very good claret nonetheless. — 7 months ago

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Good luck finding out Anything about Paul Quié & the vineyard responsible for this incredible Bordeaux. It’s my new all-time favourite, the fabled Tridente-killer, and I can’t find out ANY details about it! Will need to have a good talk with Frederic at the St Charles SAQ asap! Wow, this is unbelievable wine. Ps: found the producer’s site at titled les domaines Rauzan Gassies, but with no content and ‘new site coming soon’ ... aaaagh! — a year ago
