Scores and tasting notes
Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2013 Rauzan-Ségla gives up notes of warm plums, Morello cherries, cassis and espresso with hints of dried Provence herbs, woodsmoke and damp soil. Medium bodied, the palate gives lovely freshness and bags of earth-laced red and black fruits with a chewy texture and a lively herbal lift on the finish. The blend this year is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, harvested between September 22nd and October 16th, at an average yield of 32 hectoliters per hectare. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, 60% new. The alcohol is 13.5%, and the pH is 3.5.
