A strong effort from this property situated across the street from Chateau Palmer, Rauzan-Segla’s harvest occurred between September 21 and October 7. Fifty-five percent of the production made it into the final blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. A soft, classic style as well as ripe tannin suggest both the 1996 and 1986 vintages. The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2006 exhibits sweet, floral, black cherry, raspberry, and currant notes along with a subtle touch of menthol. Medium-bodied, elegant, pure, and surprisingly charming and approachable, it will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20-25 years. Robert Parker 90-93
Slightly light crimson. Competent and reasonably sleek though it’s difficult to see real soul and personality. Big and bold and bloody with substantial tannins. Maybe just embryonic, but very stolid. Dry finish. Hard work! Though there is some succulence in the middle. Just inexpressive for now would be my guess. Good texture. Jancis Robinson MW 17+
