2015 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1426473 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I underrated the 2015 Rauzan-Ségla on release. It’s a big, rich, incredibly sexy wine that’s certainly in the same ballpark as the 2016 (and 2018). Full-bodied, ripe, and concentrated, it has a wonderfully expansive, layered texture as well as an incredible sense of balance. Lots of cassis, leafy herbs, flowery incense, and tobacco notes all emerge from this beauty, which offers sweet tannins as well as a huge finish. This is magical stuff that’s going to keep for three decades or more. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Extremely aromatic with dried flowers, perfumed and sandalwood and blackcurrants. Full body, ultra-fine tannins, a gorgeous core of ripe fruit and blackcurrants and blueberries. Racy and very long. So impressive. This needs four or five years to come around but already so fine. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc and was matured in 65% new and 35% one-year-old barrels for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up a myriad of softly spoken fresh berry, floral and fragrant earth notes, including crushed red and black currants, black raspberries and menthol notes with touches of cigar box, lavender, violets, smoked meats, black truffles and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of very finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, the palate possesses an arresting quiet intensity of many tightly wound, subtle layers, finishing on a lingering mineral note. Very polished and precise, this Rauzan-Ségla is truly a triumph! (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Developing beautifully, this may not last quite as long as the 2016 but it still has decades ahead of it, and with so much to enjoy along the way. It's very different in personality from the 2016: this is more sumptuous, a real mouthful, creamy in texture and full of plump cassis and damson fruits. Ground coffee, liquorice and patisserie notes fill the mid-palate, making it full of pleasure. Harvest ran from 10 September to 9 October, giving a yield of 40hl/ha. 3.7pH. 65% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Rauzan-Ségla has a very pure, charming bouquet of macerated dark cherries, blueberry and vanilla aromas; subtle violet and iris scents blossom with aeration in the glass. Quintessential Rauzan-Ségla. The clean, precise, medium-bodied palate offers supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and a tightly wound but quite persistent finish. It feels more primal than its peers but there is huge potential here, testament to a château that is "going places." Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Takes a very fresh approach, with an open-knit feel to the mulled raspberry and red currant fruit. Pretty lilac, incense and singed apple wood notes underscore the fruit, while silky but persistent tannins carry the finish. Shows latent depth and precise balance, so don't let this early charm fool you, as this should unfurl beautifully in the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2040. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)
