Rauzan Segla 1998

Chateau Rauzan Segla

19 years

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, this classic, austerely-styled Medoc exhibits medium to full body, true breed as well as class, and excellent aromas of subtle herbs, cedar, cassis, and new wood. Rich, medium to full-bodied, sweet on the attack, and moderately tannic, it will benefit from 4-5 more years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018. *** This wine is a paradox - impressively built, dense ruby/purple-colored, but ferociously tannic, and possibly out of balance when the tannin is measured against the wine's concentration and extract. It will require 8-10 years of cellaring, but I am not convinced there is enough harmony between its component parts to provide complex drinking. Time will tell. For now, I will give it the benefit of the doubt. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.
