Margaux Grand Cru Classé 2005 Château Rauzan-Ségla
Margaux is known for producing elegant and refined wines, thanks to the special characteristics of the terroir.The region covers about 1,500 hectares of vineyards and boasts as many as 21 cru classé, including Château Rauzan-Ségla, one of the oldest and most renowned.
The 2005 Margaux Grand Cru Classé is a wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (2%) grapes. This combination of grapes gives the wine excellent structure and a unique aromatic bouquet. The soils on which the vineyards of Château Rauzan-Ségla are cultivated are characterized by graveleux (stony) soil and a good presence of clay and limestone, which give the wine a distinctive minerality and contribute to its unmistakable character.
Château Rauzan-Ségla follows a growing philosophy based on respect for the terroir and the environment, with careful attention to every detail, from pruning to harvesting. Harvesting is done manually, selecting only the best grapes to ensure the highest quality. The grapes are then vinified separately, aging the wine in French oak barrels for about 18-20 months. The careful selection of grapes, traditional vinification and aging in wood help create a wine of great elegance and complexity.
The 2005 Margaux Grand Cru Classé shows a deep ruby red color. On the nose, it offers a complex and rich aromatic bouquet, with notes of red and black fruits, spices, tobacco and light nuances of leather and cedar. In the mouth, the wine is structured, with soft, silky tannins, balanced acidity and a long, lingering finish. This wine is the perfect expression of the elegance and power of the great wines of Margaux.
The 2005 Margaux Grand Cru Classé is an extraordinary wine, ideal to accompany you on special occasions and to celebrate life's unforgettable moments.
