Château Rauzan-Ségla 2009

RRP £133

Undergoing something of a renaissance under the same ownership as Chanel, this was already very much a Margaux gem in 2009. The heat of the vintage comes through on the nose with heady, cracked earth. Hot, cooked flavours on the palate mirror those on the nose, but here the ensemble is lifted by fresher notes, floral and delicate.
