BARON DE BRANE
Margaux

2nd Wine of Second Growth Chateau Brane-Cantenac
The top wine currently sells for approx. £75 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.

Wine Spectator -
Bright and intensely floral, with a lovely violet aroma and long, rich plum sauce, blackberry and currant notes. There's lush toast, but it's nicely integrated. Very suave.

2012 £35.00 WS92
2017-28

Top Vintage

CANTEMERLE
Haut Medoc

Wine Spectator
- Bright and racy, with red currant and plum fruit lined with a lively tang of iron that streaks through the finish. A touch taut, but should unwind nicely with modest cellaring.

2014 £24.00 WS90

CHATEAU CLARKE
Baron Edmond de Rothschild
Listrac


RP/Neal Martin -
The 2015 Clarke has an attractive blackberry and briary scented nose with just a hint of dark chocolate emanating from the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, the acidity nicely judged with fine tension on the cedar and tobacco-tinged finish. I appreciate the freshness and refinement demonstrated by this Château Clarke, a classic Listrac that should give 10-12 years of pleasure.

2015 £27.00 RP/NM92

CHATEAU CLARKE
Baron Edmond de Rothschild
Listrac


 RP -
One of the better Clarke's ever made, this wine from the cool, backwater appellation of Listrac displays serious density, an opaque ruby/purple colour, and lots of earth, black currants and raspberries. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

2009 £28.00 RP89

SÉGLA
Margaux

2nd Wine of Rauzan-Segla
The top wine currently sells for approx. £60 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.

Antonio Galloni -
A delicious second wine, the 2014 Ségla is showing beautifully today. Bright red cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and citrus notes abound in a fresh, invigorating wine to drink in its youth. I very much like the sense of energy here. This is pure class. The Ségla is not sold en primeur, but is typically released a few years after bottling, when the estate feels the wine is ready to be enjoyed.

2014 £29.00 AG91
2017-29

Great Value!

SÉGLA
Margaux

2nd Wine of Rauzan-Segla
The top wine currently sells for approx. £100 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com - Black cherry and fresh mushroom, with hints of currants and sweet tobacco. Full- bodied, with chewy, yet polished tannins. Lovely berry and cherry. Racy and pretty. So delicious now. Second wine of Rauzan-Segla.

2009 £38.00 JS92
2016-28

CHATEAU RAUZAN-SEGLA
Margaux

RP
- The 2012 Rauzan-Ségla (54.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 1.5% Petit Verdot) is a classic Rauzan-Ségla, still relatively backward and tannic, but concentrated and extremely promising. Dense blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit along with some liquorice, vanilla, foresty notes and spice are all present in this full-bodied yet structured and big, beefy style of Rauzan-Ségla . It may turn out to be somewhat atypical for this château in its size and masculine structure, but this is impressive wine, and one of the great successes of the vintage.

2012 £72.00 RP94+

CHATEAU RAUZAN-SEGLA
Margaux

RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown
-
The 2015 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc and was matured in 65% new and 35% one-year-old barrels for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple coloured, it gives up a myriad of softly spoken fresh berry, floral and fragrant earth notes, including crushed red and black currants, black raspberries and menthol notes with touches of cigar box, lavender, violets, smoked meats, black truffles and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of very finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, the palate possesses an arresting quiet intensity of many tightly wound, subtle layers, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
Very polished and precise, this Rauzan-Ségla is truly a triumph!

2015 £96.00 RP97
2024-47
