Chateau Segla 1990

90 points

Margaux. 12.8%

Second wine of Chateau Rauzan-Segla from a good vintage but unlikely that it was meant to last 20 years.

Surprisingly dark colour. A large framed Merlot oriented claret, becoming a bit frail with obvious oxidation. Quite a lot of fun drinking now.

Slightly spirity even though it’s only 12.8% alcohol.

This was bought from a wine store called Uylsses in Margaux owned by Rauzan-Segla. This no doubt largely explains the good condition of the bottle.
