Château Petit Clos du Roy

Montagne-St. Émilion Merlot Cabernet Franc 2015

Dark Bing cherry hue. Aroma is potent. Pie filling and cobblers. Slight incense and cedar shingles. (Aude says stale bread). Flavor is straight French. Dark inky, chewy, bitter. Lots of tannins in the finish. The Franc really comes through. A wine that would divide. Not for the American palate. Nor weak of heart. But I love this kinda thing. — 3 years ago

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

9.2

I have four of these and thought I would do my 10 years in bottle check in. I will tell you this wine has the makings of something special but, it is far from ready. Its showing some Margaux beauty & style but, it needs at least another 7-10 years before I’d open another. The wine has not softened and integrated enough at this stage.

The nose reveals ripe, baked and candied fruits of, dark currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, strawberries & plum. Big vanilla, clove, cinnamon stick and nutmeg, sweet tarriness, anise, dark, rich turned earth, dry stones, dark berry cola, dry herbs, dry stem, tobacco, graphite, cedar with fresh, dark, red, blue, purple perfumed florals.

The body is big, full and rich. The tannins are dark, round but, meaty and sticky. The structure and tension are still huge. The length is really good but, the balance is still earth dominate. Ripe, baked and candied fruits of, dark currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, strawberries & plum. Big vanilla, clove, cinnamon stick and nutmeg, sweet tarriness, dark spice with some heat, dark chocolate, mocha powder, used expresso grounds, anise, dark, rich turned earth, dry stones, dry clay, gritty volcanic minerals, leathery, dark berry cola, dry herbs, dry stem, tobacco, graphite, cedar with fresh, dark, red, blue, purple perfumed florals. The acidity is round and beautiful. The finish still needs time but is nice and persists minutes.

92 now with room for 2-3 additional points in 10 plus years.

If you are the type to long cellar your wines, buy the hell out of the 2018 Rauzan-Segla.
