Dark ruby with a tight rim. Still youthful with quite some mileage. It recalls some elements of its elder brother, the First Wine Rauzan Segla. The nose of Segla 2014 is friendly, fresh and fragrant with fresh cherry, ripe strawberry, blueberry, violets, and purple florals with a mouthful of cherry, raspberry, and dark chocolate with rich, lengthy and soft tannins. ABV 13.5%; balanced ; medium-bodied. From 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, it is intense as a second wine, whose intensity is accentuated by the 2014 vintage character. Good now, but the wine will continue to evolve over the next five years.
The score is reasonably high, for example, JS92.
'Very fresh and bright with strawberry, mineral and flower aromas that follow through to a medium body, fine and polished tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Harmonious. Beautiful second wine. Hard not to drink now.'
Its first wine gets an RP95; also WS95. It is considered the 'Head' of the Second Growths from Margaux.
