Chateau Rauzan-Segla 1995

88+ points

Margaux. 13%

Disappointingly lacks the usual elegance of Rauzan-Segla. Quite brawny with heavy expensive oak. Almost Californian.

Best from 2018.

One year later – similar but this time I noticed the brawny tannins more than the oak.  A touch of 2003 about this wine.  Lacks the usual Rauzan-Segla elegance.  It may come right, but I expect it will be for a brief period.  Risky.  Drink over next 5 years.
