Lot #158. Rauzan Segla 2001

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 DM.
"I love this wine and it totally stands up today, as it has done every time I've tasted it recently - it's pretty much the most drinkable vintage in this lineup. It's so balanced and deliciously elegant yet fleshy, still youthful and full of black pepper and saffron spices. The juicy, elegant fruits are full of flavour and are very much in the signature of Rauzan Ségla. The smoky edge just gets better and better in the glass, and gives it that gulpable sapidity. Harvested 28 September to 11 October, giving a yield of 46hl/ha. 50% new oak." Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine, Apr 2019
Provenance: The Arène Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,400
