2004 Rauzan-Segla (Margaux)

Media Reviews

Robert Parker

Rauzan-Segla’s finesse-styled 2004 offers raspberry, cherry, forest floor, and dried herb-like characteristics in its deep ruby/purple-hued, medium-bodied personality. With excellent purity, freshness, and precision, it is not a blockbuster claret, but rather a stylish, elegant, accessible effort with sweet tannin. Anticipated maturity. 2009-2022. 89 points

Jean-Marc Quarin

Tasted twice since July 2007, this wine displays an increasing difference with the 2003, being better both in fruit quality and tannins in the finish. Aromatic and caressing, it finishes delicious and nuanced, with taste and a “classy” distinguished dimension. Taste now before it shuts down. Otherwise, wait 2010. 93 points

In my barrel assessment I hinted that this Rauzan-Segla might merit an additional point in bottle and so it came to pass! It has very good intensity on the nose with thick layers of raspberry, wild strawberry and a touch of orange peel and graphite. The palate is full-bodied, adding weight al l the time in the glass, quite plump with good solid structure. It is blessed with a lovely cedar-tinged finish with a length that can only leave you smiling. Drink 2012-2025. 91 points
