The palate shows a fresh, vibrant fruit character with black and red fruit spreading across the mid-palate.
Beautifully textured with fresh acidity and fine-grained tannin giving length to this appealing Rauzan.
It is a beautiful wine in this vintage, not nearly as powerful and structured as the 2010, but it has complex notes of sweet red and black fruits, unsmoked cigar tobacco, spice box and a hint of very subtle wood.
The complex perfume is followed by a dark ruby/plum-coloured wine with beautifully sweet tannins, a silky, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish.
