2009 Rauzan Segla (RP93+)
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 RauzanSegla will provide enjoyable drinking over the next three decades. About the only thing
controversial about the 2009 RauzanSegla will be the label designed by Chanel's artistic director, Karl Lagerfeld, for the estate's 350th anniversary.
