Chateau Rauzan-Segla Margaux 2007 review: Fabulous, balanced and smooth wine

Today I’ll be reviewing a bottle of Château Rauzan-Ségla Margaux (Grand Cru Classé) 2007. I have always wanted to try a Bordeaux type of wine and this came to my attention when I saw that Crystal Wines @ Valley Point had offers for it. You can check out their website here as they do have good discounts every now and then.

 

Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2007

A lovely bottle of Château Rauzan-Ségla Margaux (Grand Cru Classé) 2007 which I finished it all by myself.

Chateau Rauzan-Segla has a fascinating history which dates back to 1661. Meaning, they have 359 years in the making! Based on The Wine Cellar Insider, the best vintages of Chateau Rauzan Seglaare : 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2012, 2010, 2009, 2006, 2005, 2000, 1990, 1986 and 1983.

Prior to drinking, I’ve read reviews that wines from Château Rauzan-Ségla were elegant in nature and highly rated. Based on Vivino, it is rated Top 1% of wines in the world.

On the looks, it is medium ruby in colour. Wine was very well-aged considering it a 2007 vintage. Bottle packaging looks sleek and it was such a joy opening it.

Smells include leather, oak, mustard, liquorice, cherries, strawberries. The combination of such smells gives you a sense of warmth and grounded feeling.

Taste-wise, it is medium-bodied and smooth on the palate. Intriguing. Exciting. Makes my heart skip a bit. Felt an emotional attachment to it and akin it to the likes of “the girl you always wanted to know more but never did”. Tasted notes of black currants, blackberries, cherries, candies, wood, and lychee.

I have also bought the 2001 and 2005 vintage and will be comparing them between vintages soon!
Enjoyed it while re-reading The Little Prince.

Conclusion: Slightly on the pricey end but well worth every dollar spent.
How many of you enjoy drinking this bottle of wine as well?
Cheers,
Vincent

  • Hi, I am a long time supporter of your blog. Great write up and great post there. Likewise, I find this one of my favourite wines which I keep going back to.

    The blend of fruits, spices and tannins are just perfect to drink.

    Keep up the good work and keep recommending good wines!
