The nose reveals; some dark cherry liqueur, blackberries, black plum skin, blueberries, black raspberries, dark chocolate bar, mocha notes, cinnamon, some nutmeg & clove, leather, dry top soil, dry stone, underbrush, fresh dark florals & violets.

The body full. The tannins still firm but coming around. The palate show the region and still needs another eight years. The fruits show the ripeness the 2010 vintage delivered. When you taste it, you gets it’s Rauzan’s little brother. It gets better as it opens up but, wait to open any bottles in your cellar. The 2010 vintage is a long cellar and this is no different.

Dark cherry, blackberries, black plum skin, blueberries, black raspberries, strawberries come on as it sits on the palate, dark chocolate bar, mocha notes, cinnamon, some nutmeg & clove, herbaceous notes, touch of black pepper corns, leather, dry black soil, dry stone, dry crushed rocks, underbrush, fresh dark florals & violets. The acidity is nice. There is good structure, length, tension and balance but, again needs time. The finish is nice but, still earth dominate and persistent minutes.

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.

strong tannin with red fruit flavor and concentration. Guess that's the structure of segla people refer to.
