2017 Château Rauzan-Ségla, Cru Classé Margaux

This is a step-up for Rauzan-Ségla - catching up with Canon? It's savoury and nicely judged, with amazing complexity and purity. It's fine and long on the palate, with lifting acidity and mineral notes.

TASTING NOTES

This is tight and focused with a super precise palate of blackberries, blackcurrants and hints of flowers. Full body, linear tannins and a long finish.
