2016 Bordeaux…It’s All In The Bottle (Jan 2019)

The 2016 Ségla is sexy, racy and inviting, all qualities found in the Grand Vin, but naturally on a smaller scale. Silky tannins and soft, pliant, red-toned fruit all add to the wine’s early appeal. There is so much to like in this expressive, open-knit second wine from Rauzan-Ségla. As always, Ségla is sold only in bottle (not en primeur) and offered to the market with a few years of bottle age, when the estate believes the wine is starting to drink well. Ségla is a blend taken mostly from satellite parcels, along with younger vine fruit from the château’s core holdings.
