A forgotten property for much, this 86 was stunning. Generous, voluptuous, the bottle was in perfect condition. It has all the power, throttle I would expect for a 86, one of my fav vintage of the 80's, along with 85 and 89. Bottom line: a wine that delivers, in perfect shape now. This Rauzan is a perfect buy.

This was delicious, to put it mildly. Lots of dried cherry, leather - earthy and wonderful...it had everything that makes Margaux special. (As much as the earthquake-ravaged labels evoke memories we'd rather forget, they do add a certain charm to these older bottles!)

In incredibly good shape. Still a burst a grippy tannin after the mostly evolved fruit.

Margaux region of Bordeaux

A 34 year old Chateau Rausan-Segla —what a treat! Dark ruby red color with browning. On the Nose: Cassis, floral, forest floor, cedar, crushed rock and smoke. Initial red cherry tar tobacco taste; breaks down with lingering truffle, mushroom and veggie flavors; and, finishing with a smokey meat flavor. Tannins present but soft. This Bordeaux is elegant, layered with a firm structure.

Time for the way back machine to 1986( a hot/dry year that got some good ratings). 1/2 hour decant to release the aromas. A stunning dark ruby red with some browning. On the nose: that beautiful aged Bordeaux perfumed nose!! with cedar, smoke, dark fruit, green veggie, cassis, forest floor, and crushed rocks. Taste: red cherry, tar, mushrooms, tobacco, smoked meat. Elegant with just a hint of tannins...a firm wine that was a blast to drink at +30 years old.....probably just starting its long slow downside.
