2018 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 89

Medium-bodied with leafy red fruits, herbs, flowers and soft textures on the palate, this wine only requests a few years in the cellar before it is ready to be enjoyed. 88-90 Pts

2017 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 88

Medium bodied with an herbal, leafy accent to the bright red fruits, a few years in the cellar will add more complexity and softness to the wine.

2016 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 88

On the bright red side of the style range, the wine is medium-bodied with nice floral overtones and a crisp, lean herbal and sharp red fruit finish.

Medium-bodied and floral with ripe fruits and a lean character, this wine is produced in an old school, traditional style.

2015 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 89

Medium-bodied with tobacco and cassis at the forefront, this wine gives a strong, green olive sensation in the mouth, which subtracts from the overall experience. 88 - 90 Pts

2014 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 87

The focus is on bright, crisp red fruits. This medium-bodied, lighter, fresh, style of Margaux will be best in its youth. 86-88 Pts

2013 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 83

Light in color and concentration, the wine focuses on bright, crisp, pomegranate, cranberry and cherry tones. 82-84 Pts

2010 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 89

Medium bodied, with a cherry, tobacco tinged, floral nose. Soft, but with firm tannins, and a finish that is about its red berry freshness, more time is still required here, for this to come together.

2009 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 88

From a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, the wine opens with blackberry, pepper, earth and forest smells. Medium/full bodied and slightly rustic in its traditional approach, some tasters might like this more than others.

2005 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 87

Better on the nose, with its earthy, tobacco, cedar wood, red berries and forest scented aromatics than on the medium bodied, fresh, bright, crisp and clipped palate. Stylistically classic in its nature, some tasters are going to like this wine more than others.

2004 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 83

Light in color, fruit, complexity and probably fully mature.

1961 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 65

Smoke, tobacco, earth and sour cherry aromas, no fruit and too much acidity were the best of this bottle. The tart, sour red berry finish was undrinkable. If your looking at abottle with less than perfect provenance, it's not something you want to buy or drink. I have had better bottles on different occasions.

Better in the nose than the mouth, with its earthy, leathery, 5 spice aromas, this wine was dried out, tart and lacking in pleasure.

This showed light ruby with bricking color. Spearmint, cassis, tobacco, smoke, cedar and metal aromas were easy to find. Medium bodied, with soft textures on the palate, the wine ended with a dark cherry finish with some tartness at the end. This fully mature Bordeaux wine is not going to improve. Drink up

Little complexity in the perfume. It reminded me of dusty, tobacco laden fruit. In the mouth the finish was clipped short because a sour note seemed to intrude. Not a lot going on to enjoy. While not dead, it was gasping for air.

1959 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 83

This fully mature Bordeaux opened with smoke, tobacco, damp earth, fresh cut leaves and light berry aromatics. Medium bodied and slightly rustic in texture, this light Margaux will appeal to fans of light, traditional styles, more than it did to me.

1928 Château Rauzan-Gassies  (Margaux) 92

This is a beauty. Ripe, red berries are made even better with wet forest floor, tobacco leaf, smoke, truffle and earthy scents are all over the place. The tannins have some strictness, but the elegance of the Margaux appellation tires to poke through.
