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.
