2010 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1067223 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A wine that could easily be mistaken for a First Growth, the 2010 Rauzan-Ségla is an incredibly powerful, full-bodied wine by this estate’s standards, yet it nevertheless holds onto a terrific sense of elegance as well as perfect balance. A huge nose of blackcurrants, smoked earth, tobacco, lead pencil, and spice give way to a concentrated, blockbuster styled Margaux that has thrilling depth of fruit, masses of ripe tannins, and great length and finesse on the finish. This brilliant wine is just now seemingly on the edge of its drink window and offers immense pleasure, yet it has another 30-40 years of life ahead of it. Along with the 2015 and 2016, it’s the greatest wine made at this estate in the past two decades. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Beautiful clarity of fruit with raspberries and currants on the nose. Roses and other flowers too. It's almost hard to describe, but there's a real purity. Full body, with fabulous balance and depth. It has everything in the right place. Best ever? Inner quote mark (2/2013)

96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Extremely good quality, a wonderfully accomplished, impressive Margaux where you feel so happy to be tasting it. It delivers accomplished impressive classified Bordeaux character. Black fruits, liquorice, smoke and pulsating tannins. (JA) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of the top Margaux wines, this is in top form, finely balanced and as elegant as it is powerful. It is darkly structured, dense yet balancing tannins with ripe black plums. It expresses the complexity of the vintage. A wine for serious, long-term aging. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark To reiterate, the 2010 Rauzan Segla is like a super-duper version of the 1986. Displaying fabulous density, an inky purple color and a superb nose of forest floor with a hint of menthol as well as loads of creme de cassis, mocha and touches of chocolate and subtle oak, this full-bodied, deep, concentrated wine represents only 45% of the estate’s production. It is certainly not for those who can’t wait a few years for it to round into shape, as I suspect it needs at least 5-8 years of bottle-age, but it should last for half a century or more. A stunning wine from Rauzan Segla, kudos go to administrator John Kolasa for turning out this profound wine, which should prove to be a timeless classic from the appellation of Margaux. (RP) 95+ Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Rauzan-Ségla is simply one of the finest releases in recent years. It has a heavenly bouquet with wild strawberry, subtle floral notes and great precision. The palate is nothing powerful, less flamboyant than the 2010 Palmer, yet endowed with incredible precision and length. All you could really want from a Margaux. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Flashy style of Margaux, with alluring warm cocoa and black tea aromatics followed by cashmere-textured plum sauce, steeped fig and blackberry confiture notes. The well-integrated structure makes this seem almost accessible now, but the ample length and a smoldering tobacco note make a case for cellaring. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Boysenberry, bitter chocolate, menthol and sweet oak on the nose. Spicy, fat and layered, with compelling sweetness to the concentrated flavors of boysenberry, cherry and dark chocolate. Finishes spicy, broad and very long, with serious but suave tannins and echoing dark fruits. This very dense and full-bodied wine refuses to let up. Looks to be a great vintage for this estate. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (7/2013)

K&L Notes

96 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown in Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Rauzan-Ségla is youthfully reticent and closed to begin, slowly unfurling to offer notions of underbrush, black truffles, smoked meats and tar over a core of baked black cherries, prunes and crème de cassis plus touches of iron ore and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, concentrated and jam-packed with savory/earthy fruit, it has a rock-solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing with great length and expression."
