2007 Margaux 2e Cru Classe
The 2007 Chateau Rauzan-Segla is a true success, considering it was born in a rather challenging growing season. This Margaux 2e cru Classe from Bordeaux reveals a dark ruby hue. Commanding fruit marks the nose which distils beautiful scents of cherry, blackberry, flowers, pepper, and fumet. The palate is both supple and structured, yet very balanced. Well-integrated tannins lead to a lovely finish with refreshing and very tasty hints of liquorice.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
This substantial 2007 (a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot) exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged color along with a big, sweet kiss of licorice, forest floor, tobacco leaf, black currants, and cherries. It possesses a lovely texture, a round, ample mouthfeel, sweet tannin, and low acidity. It is drinking well now, and should continue to evolve for a decade or more.
