Reviews

Representing around 44% of the estate's production (more or less as usual), the 2021 Rauzan-Ségla unwinds in the glass with aromas of minty cassis, blackberries, loamy soil, dark chocolate, and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and impressively concentrated, it's layered and seamless, with a sweet core of fruit, powdery tannins, lively acids, and an impressively penetrating finish. The Rauzan team opted to ferment Merlot rather cooler than normal this year to moderate extraction. Tasted six times. ~93-95 WA

One of the undeniable successes is the 2021 Château Rauzan-Ségla, which emerges from yields of 38 hectoliters per hectare and is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. It has remarkable depth and density as well as classic aromas of cassis, tobacco, spicy oak, and subtle floral notes. These all carry to a medium-bodied, concentrated 2021 with polished tannins and a great finish. It's one classy, seamless, elegant Margaux that will drink well right out of the gate yet keep for 20 years. ~93-95 J. Dunnuck

A firm and linear wine with crushed stone and some citrusy acidity. Medium body, creamy tannins, and a fresh finish. Lively at the end. Currant, blackberry, and fresh tobacco in the aftertaste. 75% cabernet sauvignon. ~94-95 James Suckling

The 2021 Rauzan-Ségla is absolutely gorgeous. It offers up scents of graphite, savory herbs, licorice, chocolate, and plum, all beautifully lifted by stong Cabernet Sauvignon inflections. Naturally, the 2021 doesn't have the mid-palate richness and overall intensity of recent years. Readers will find a tightly wound Margaux that balances classic structure with modern-day precision. I can't wait to see how it ages. Tasted four times. ~94-97 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
