The temperature range (warm days, cool nights) in September and October helped complete the maturation process of the grapes. The harvest was spread out over four weeks because of a staggered flowering. The date of the harvest was essential to obtain grapes with a great concentration, and an impressive tannic structure while keeping a nice freshness and remarkable balance. Patience and the careful work of our pickers have given us the confidence that the 2010 harvest will result in a great vintage. The wines of Château Rauzan-Ségla express, first and foremost, the internationally recognized characteristics of the Margaux terroir: an elegant, fragrant bouquet, lots of taste on the palate, a well-balanced structure and very great elegance. But beyond these recognizable features, there is the individual signature of the Chateau. A deep robe with a sparkle of the future, a texture that is velvet smooth, an elegant palate on which the characteristics of the grapes burst forth, together with touches of violet in some vintages.

Wine EnthusiastOne of the top Margaux wines, this is in top form, finely balanced and as elegant as it is powerful. It is darkly structured, dense yet balancing tannins with ripe black plums. It expresses the complexity of the vintage. A wine for serious, long-term aging.

Wine SpectatorFlashy style of Margaux, with alluring warm cocoa and black tea aromatics followed by cashmere-textured plum sauce, steeped fig and blackberry confiture notes. The well-integrated structure makes this seem almost accessible now, but the ample length and a smoldering tobacco note make a case for cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030.
