Touch of leather with some toasted nuts and vanilla notes. Quite fruit-driven with a touch of oak spice. some development present on the palate as well - elements of vegetal and earth. You can tell that it's a pretty good wine that has ticked most of the boxes, just not outstanding enough.

(Chateau Rauzan-Gassies Margaux) Hints of blackberry and cream here, in a chalky, mineral style. Cool on entry, lighter and leaner in the midpalate when compared to Ségla, but more juicy in terms of fruit. Nice tannins at the core, ripe, with good acidity. It lacks great substance and definition, but the wines here do seem to be improving.
(Château Rauzan-Gassies (Margaux)) This wine has some attractive and rather nutty spice on the nose, probably oak derived, with some reasonably confident fruit character. Despite this the palate has a rather light entry, and this feeling persist into the midpalate. It has a supple texture with some spiky fruit. The tannins give it a nice backbone, although they do feel a touch chewy considering the weight of wine.
