About this Item

Margaux, 2000

Château Rauzan-Ségla's history dates back to 1661 when it was founded by Pierre de Rauzan. Apart from Rauzan-Ségla, Pierre de Rauzan was also involved in Château Margaux, Château Latour, Pichon Lalande and Pichon Baron. Rauzan-Ségla became famous world-wide, even having Thomas Jefferson purchases several cases of the wines. After changing hands through various owners, Rauzan-Ségla was sold in 1994 to, the Wertheimer brothers – the owners of Chanel.

Critics Ratings

'The 2000 Rauzan-Ségla was the only vintage that I procured myself out in the market because of many fond memories. I am so glad I did fill in the gap because I feel it is a rather overlooked gem. It has a gorgeous bouquet, a little backward at first but then opening with black cherries, blueberry jam and hints of Provençal herbs, though none of the saddle leather I noticed back in 2010. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannins, nigh perfect acidity and a rich, quite grippy finish. The estate prefers the 2001 but I find this possesses more ambition.' - Neal Martin 94 points.
