Château Rauzan-Ségla 1993

SKU:1002/93 Bordeaux - Margaux - Red - 12.5° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 87

In 1661, Pierre des Mesures de Rauzan, an important winemerchant in Bordeaux, acquired the vineyard and gave his name to the estate. For two centuries generations of the Rauzan family succeeded in the running of the property and the Rauzan-Segla wines grew in reputation in a remarkable way. This Margaux, ranked as a Second Growth, was reborn in 1994 when Chanel became its owner.At that point, everything was set in motion to restore the reputation and rank of this gem of the Margaux appellation. Painstaking soil preparation, pruning, handpicking, sorting of grapesàare some of the precautionary measures vital for the quality of the wines produced. Rauzan-Segla wines offer a generous bouquet with clever elegance expressing the internationally recognised characteristics of the Margaux terroir.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is the last vintage for this property where Rauzan is spelled with an "s" as opposed to a "z". The opaque ruby/purple-colored 1993 is undoubtedly a vin de garde. However, it is also frightfully tannic, austere, and lean, raising some doubt as to whether it will ever achieve total harmony. Copious quantities of sweet cassis fruit do eventually emerge in the aromatics. Fruit and extract can be detected in the attack, but the wine's personality quickly narrows out with its formidable tannin lashing the back of the palate. As always, the balance between fruit and tannin, especially critical with respect to this vintage, may not favor a graceful evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015.
