Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 94-97/100
The 2021 Rauzan-Ségla is absolutely gorgeous. It offers up scents of
graphite, savory herbs, licorice, chocolate and plum, all beautifully lifted by
strong Cabernet Sauvignon inflections. Naturally, the 2021 doesn’t have
the mid-palate richness and overall intensity of recent years. Readers will
find a tightly wound Margaux that balances classic structure with modernday precision. I can’t wait to see how it ages. Tasted four times.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 93-95/100
Representing around 44% of the estate’s production (more or less as usual), the 2021 Rauzan-Ségla unwinds in the glass with aromas of minty cassis, blackberries, loamy soil, dark chocolate and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep and impressively concentrated, it’s layered and seamless, with a sweet core of fruit, powdery tannins, lively acids and an impressively penetrating finish. The Rauzan team opted to ferment Merlot rather cooler than normal this year to moderate extraction.
