Ségla is made of grapes from the youngest vines of the property (less than 10 years old).
Since 1994, when CHANEL bought the property, many improvements have been made in the cellars and in the vineyards.
The aim is to produce a good value-for-money second wine, while respecting the Margaux expression and catching glimpses of the first wine, Château Rauzan-Ségla.
Notes and Reviews
James Suckling (93)
A full and silky wine with a slightly hollow center-palate now but it’s very pretty and chewy. Needs two or three years to soften. Very persistent and structured.
