2001 Rauzan-Segla, Margaux

SKU #1194239 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark I love this wine and it totally stands up today, as it has done every time I've tasted it recently - it's pretty much the most drinkable vintage in this lineup. It's so balanced and deliciously elegant yet fleshy, still youthful and full of black pepper and saffron spices. The juicy, elegant fruits are full of flavour and are very much in the signature of Rauzan Ségla. The smoky edge just gets better and better in the glass, and gives it that gulpable sapidity. Harvested 28 September to 11 October, giving a yield of 46hl/ha. 50% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2001 Rauzan-Ségla shows a little more degradation on the rim, but the nose is fresher than the 2000, offering menthol-tinged black fruit, licorice and earthy scents. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a wonderful line of acidity. This was always snapping at the heels of the 2000 and now appears to have overtaken it in terms of depth and vigor. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A huge, powerful, dense wine, which layers pure black fruits over dusty tannins. This is an impressive wine, proof of Rauzan-Ségla's improvements since Chanel took over ownership. It is packed with fruits, like an intense jelly, but also has dryness, acidity and good aging potential. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2005)

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-brick colored, the 2001 Rauzan-Ségla rolls out of the glass with open, expressive, mature notes of potpourri, star anise, incense and cigar box with a pretty core of kirsch, redcurrant jelly and dried figs. The light to medium-bodied palate delivers mature spice and dried berry layers with a light grip of chewy tannins and bags of freshness, finishing with a peppery kick. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautiful aromas of spices, berries and plums follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with very fine tannins and a pretty, delicious finish. All in finesse. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Quite dark crimson. Scented, really very aromatic and Margaux-ish. A little sweetness at the beginning. Heavier than some. Still quite a bit of chew. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2012)
