Description

Ch. Rauzan-Ségla and Mouton Rothschild were considered the leading Second Growth Bordeaux properties during the 19th century; however, while the fortunes of Mouton prospered in the 20th century, Rauzan-Ségla's reputation dwindled, and a succession of disappointing wines were produced.

In the early 1980s, the property was sold, and the Renaissance began. Now with the might and wealth of Chanel behind this château (since April 1994), the wines here have gone from strength to strength. Rauzan-Ségla is once again worthy of its Second Growth status.
The 2001 vintage is dense with a concentrated cassis nose, supported by graceful fruit and ripe tannins. Despite its power, this has real class, showing elegance, restraint and subtlety. This has all the majesty of great Margaux.
