2005 Chateau Rauzan Segla
One of the most beautiful Rauzan-Seglas made in decades this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot and tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot exhibits a gorgeous perfume of spring flowers subtle mint black cherries black currants licorice and a hint of new oak. It offers medium to full body sweet tannins and a layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally to a sensational finish. Although this beauty is performing well it remains a decade away from its plateau of maturity. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030+. Source: Wine Advocate
