The 1986 Rauzan-Segla is held up as one of the best wines of that decade. Now at 30 years old, it has an initially tightly wound bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass. It eventually offers exquisite aromas of small red cherries, cranberry jus, confit dates and briary, a hint of sandalwood tucked underneath. You would never describe the aromatics as "explosive" but it seems to gain in intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly savory entry. There is good structure here, but there is a sweet seam of fig and candied orange peel that to be honest, does not quite match the personality of the wine. My hunch is that this Rauzan-Segla is approaching the end of its drinking plateau, but any "decline" is going to be gradual and graceful. Drink now if you can, though I am certain large format bottles will have much more to offer. Tasted July 2016.
For almost 400 years, Château Rauzan-Segla, a Second Great Classified Growth of 1855, reigns over the lands of the prestigious Margaux appellation located on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region.
Château Rauzan-Segla has risen to the top of the wines of its appellation due to the restructuring of its vineyard, the modernization of its winery and cellar, and the owners’ careful attention to details. Looking, smelling, and tasting a glass of Rauzan Segla is an invitation to a journey like no other. An adventure that is full of unique and delicious experiences that characteries the fine wines from Bordeaux.
