Château Rauzan-Ségla is a second growth from Margaux, Bordeaux, as set out in the 1855 classification of Medoc and Graves. The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend is rich and concentrated, and is often considered one of the best of the second growths.
The château was initially founded under the name Domaine de Rauzan in 1661 by Pierre Desmezures, an important figure in Bordeaux's history who, at the time, also owned châteaux Margaux and Latour. Eventually, the property came under the control of the Baroness of Ségla, Catherin de Rauzan, who named it Rauzan-Ségla for herself. In 1994, the estate was bought by fashion giant Chanel, which also owns Château Canon in Bordeaux and St Supéry in Napa.
Since 1994, quality has improved at Rauzan-Ségla. Machine harvesting was eliminated, and there was a move to work the vineyards plot by plot. Grapes are sorted by hand and are aged in high-quality Sessile oak barrels. Château Rauzan-Ségla is carefully blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The second wine, Ségla, is made in a more approachable style than the grand vin with a higher proportion of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Rauzan-Ségla offers up an expressive nose of baked blackberries, kirsch, warm cassis and baked plums with hints of cigar box and tilled soil. Full-bodied, rich and expansive in the mouth, it has layer upon layer of bold red and black fruit preserves with earthy accents and a velvety texture, finishing long and lively.
Deep garnet in color, the 2008 Rauzan-Ségla has a rather rustic nose of sweaty leather, tobacco and dried herbs over a core of dried mulberries, prunes and underbrush. Medium-bodied, the mid-palate has just enough earthy/savory flavors with chewy tannins and a drying finish.
Deep garnet colored, the 2007 Rauzan-Ségla is scented of cigar box, baking spices and preserved plums with nuances of pencil shavings, leather and bay leaves. The medium-bodied palate is delicately styled with maturing earth and spice flavors plus a chewy frame, finishing with an herbal lift.
