Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Chteau Rauzan-Sgla has a sous-bois and sandalwood-scented bouquet with a light mahogany bureau scent developing soon after. The nose is open and inviting. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and bestowed with greater fruit concentration than the nose suggests: blackberry, raspberry mixed with sage, cedar and a touch of sea salt. As usual, this Rauzan-Sglas has a surfeit of personality and while it might not be a contender for the longest-lived Margaux, it is the kind of Left Bank 2006 that you welcome at the dinner table. Tasted January 2016.
