From the outstanding 2009 vintage, the grapes for this wine were hand harvested from low yielding 35 year old vines to create a traditional cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot together with a dash of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that add freshness and spice to the blend. The wine is then aged for a period of 12 months in French oak before being bottled. Deep crimson in colour, this classically styled wine displays rich aromas of assorted dark berry fruits with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Elegant and supple on the palate, this medium bodied wine displays further notes of blackcurrant, liquorice and spice supported with soft silky tannins and leading to a long and satisfying finish. Drinking beautifully now, our 2009 Margaux is a perfect partner to a variety of roast red meat and game dishes and will continue to age gracefully over the next 4-5 years.£3.33 per 100.00ml
Our seductive own label Margaux is exclusively produced by the revered estate of Château Rauzan-Ségla under the supervision of John Kolasa and his highly rated team. As a nod to the past, and to the property’s adherence to tradition, the image depicted on the front label is of the faithful ‘vélo’, or bicycle, which is used to convey the chateau’s workforce around the picturesque estate and its vineyards. It was named as particularly special by Henry Jeffreys from The Lady: "One sip and the beautiful fragrance will overcome you".
