Ch Rauzan Ségla 2022
2e Grand Cru Classé
Vinous – Neil Martin – 95-97/100
The 2022 Rauzan-Ségla was picked 2 to 28 September at 30hL/ha and
matured for 18 months in 50% new oak. Nicolas Audebert told me that it
contains 17% vin de presse which is slightly higher than normal, a
combination of 150 separate vinifications. This has a very opulent bouquet
with layers of black cherries, créme de cassis and violets. Perhaps just a
little too decadent? The palate is medium-bodied with fine balance, grainy
tannins, very pure and focused with quite a minerally finish. Long in the
mouth. It’s just missing that knockout blow at the moment, yet it’s still a
supremely well-crafted Margaux.
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 96-97/100
The 2022 Rauzan-Ségla is a beautifully sensual, charming wine, bursting with aromas of cherries, dark berries and plums mingled with hints of violets, sweet loamy soil and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it’s fleshy and enveloping, with an ample core of vibrant fruit, supple tannins and a long, succulent finish. The 2022 is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot; and in 2022, the east-facing sides of the vines, which see the afternoon sun, were picked separately, along with anything that showed signs of stress.
