Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2002

90 points

Margaux. 13%

Dark. Somewhat muted nose, slightly lactic. Dense strong flavour, a bit green. Almost medicinal. Concentrated. The most extracted Rauzan-Segla I’ve tried – unusual. It’s difficult to know whether or not to be critical, or whether this wine has a long beautiful career ahead of it. This is a difficult time to be tasting the top 2002s. Given its reasonable price compared to other vintages I’d think this would be a good cellaring gamble.

  1. Update – July 2012 – I wouldn’t say it was very extracted but it is concentrated with that raw, greenish cassis of 2002 on the left-bank. It’s a good wine, though many would find it confronting. Built for 15+ years rather than just a mere 10.
