1988 Chateau Rauzan-Segla, Margaux, Case of 12 btls

Shop 'In Stock' Wines
"The 1988 Rauzan-Ségla is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot, which apparently suffered a little coulure that year. Readers should note that it was tasted from a freshly poured bottle and one that had been decanted for one hour, simply for comparison purposes. Now this has a flipping gorgeous bouquet with precocious fruit for a 1988, mulberry and touches of peppermint verging on eucalyptus. The palate perhaps has not quite kept up the nose, yet it remains fresh and “solid” with firm tannin, truffle tinged black fruit intermingling with cedar and undergrowth. This is certainly the best of three or four bottles that I have tried over the years and having tasted several other vintages from this era, one of the best of the decade. Tasted at the château."
