Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
97 JS / 95+ WA / 93+ RP
Special edition label designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the 350th Anniversary of the chateau.
Complex aromas of dried citrus fruit, with very ripe plums and currants. Full and very dense, with lots of beautiful fruit and super velvety tannins. This is really long and caressing, with intense structure. A gorgeous wine. Muscular and powerful. Made for the long term. Try in 2020. - James Suckling
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Chateau Rauzan-Segla has a very fruity warm blackcurrant and blackberry preserve nose over hints of lilacs, cedar, cloves and cinnamon stick. Full bodied, rich and seductively fruited in the mouth, it has a solid foundation to support with a high level of velvety tannins and refreshing acid, finishing long. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
A classic Margaux, this blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon and 43% Merlot reveals a dense plum/blue/purple color in addition to a sumptuous perfume of subtle new oak interwoven with underbrush, black currants, black raspberries, spring flowers, and a hint of dusty, loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied with sweet but abundant tannin, and beautiful purity, texture and equilibrium, the 2009 Rauzan Segla will provide enjoyable drinking over the next three decades. About the only thing controversial about the 2009 Rauzan Segla will be the label designed by Chanel’s artistic director, Karl Lagerfeld, for the estate’s 350th anniversary. - Robert Parker
