    Description

    Chateau Rauzan Segla 1990
    Margaux
    1sdc
    Bottle (1)


    "It reveals an opaque purple color, but the wine is broodingly backward, with a formidable tannin level. Closer examination, however, reveals large quantities of sweet, earthy, cassis fruit, full body, and a leathery toughness. The wine is pure, with huge flavor extraction, as well as mouthsearing tannin. In previous tastings it displayed more openness and less aggressiveness. All the component parts appear to be present, but this massive wine has gone into a dormant state. Give it 7-8 more years of bottle age; it may be a 30-year wine." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #109, Feb. 1997)

    "A complex nose of subtle menthol intermixed with black currants, cherries, spice box, cedar, and herbs emerges from this fully mature 1990. It is a fleshy, round, generously endowed Margaux with silky tannins, low acidity, and beautiful purity. Drink it with great pleasure now, or cellar it for another decade." (94 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #183, June 2009)
