Was für ein komplexes und gleichzeitig tänzerisches Parfüm, frischgepflückte Wildhimbeere, rotes Johannisbeergelee und verführerischer Veilchenduft. Am dicht verwobenen Gaumen mit einer Textur wie Samt und Seide, vibrierender Rasse, fein salzigem Extrakt und perfekt geformtem Modellkörper. Im konzentrierten, ewig langen Finale schwarzbeerige Konturen, edle Cassiswürze, dunkle Mineralik und erhabene Adstringenz. Gehört in seiner Klasse zu den Besten. Kaufen!
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.
A showstopper of a wine for me in 2021. Wonderful aromatic intensity on the nose filled with perfumed fruits, chocolate and wild flowers. Gorgeous clarity and precision, the tannins are fine and powdery supporting the vibrant and energetic purple and black fruit; zingy blackcurrant, strawberry, cherry and plum with an overall creamy chalky texture and grip. Elegant and glamorous - so much styling on show, it feels polished and pristine with clear markings from the terroir but no harshness or austerity just great acidity and liveliness. Such mouthwatering salivation and lift at the end making you want another glass just to taste it again. Tasted twice and both times I loved it. Pure and precise with everything you want from a 2021. A yield of 38hl/ha. Ageing 18 months, 60% new barrels.
According to Nicolas Audebert, the 2021 Rauzan Ségla has a reduced proportion of Merlot, as a consequence of which it was felt that the Petit Verdot crowded out the final blend and was thus demoted to the Deuxième Vin. Matured in 60% new oak for an intended 18 months, it has a surprisingly opulent bouquet with conspicuous Merlot that has the hubris to vie for attention with the Cabernet. Very pure and well-defined, this gains intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very finely chiseled tannins, displaying disarming purity and poise. Minerally on the finish, with just the faintest hint of dark chocolate on the aftertaste. Precision, precision, precision.
Cuvee: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot. Reifung: 18 Monate in Barriques, zu 60% neu.
