2010 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

SKU #1133159 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 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. (RP) 95+ Inner quote mark (2/2013)

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. I'd lay it down for at least seven or eight years and then drink it over the next two or three decades. Looks to be a great vintage for this estate. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Fragrant and savoury all at once. Classic integration of cassis and cedar aromas that only Bordeaux can do. Then really rich and creamy on the palate even though the tannins are dense and firm. Chocolate rules on the finish though there's freshness to balance. 17.5/20 points (JH) Inner quote mark (11/2012)

K&L Notes

95 points Lisa Perotti-Brown in Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Rauzan-Ségla comes prancing out of the glass with gregarious notes of baked black cherries, mulberries and blackcurrant pastilles plus hints of star anise, cigar box, fragrant soil and lavender. Full-bodied, the palate has wonderfully ripe, velvety tannins supporting the generous, multi-layered fruit, finishing very long and beautifully perfumed." (3/2020)

Here is a profound wine with earthy aromas of crushed flowers, dark fruit and a minty note that is huge but effortless and balanced. The open knight fruit profile, classy lines and fine grip on the finish almost hide the 20 plus years of ageing potential lurking underneath. A fantastic effort that is well worth the money.

An ager with deep, concentrated aromas of toasted oak, smoke and Asian spice. Big wine but very silky for a 2010 wine. Will age a long time, but good to drink in next five years.
Drink from 2018 to 2038
