Segla, from Chateau Rauzan Segla is consistently the best performing "second wine" from the top Chateaux in terms of price and quality and the 2005 is drinking beautifully now

Segla has led the Bordeaux market in producing a consistently high quality second wine, particularly in a great vintage like 2005. Segla retains all the Margaux charm of its bigger brother whilst being remarkably accessible and well-priced. This will certainly be on our table during this year’s Christmas festivities.

Chanel bought the property in 1994 and completely renovated both the winery, the Chateau and the vineyards. They also invested in a stellar winemaking team headed up by John Kolasa (previously of Chateau Latour, and also responsible for the vast improvements at Chateau Canon). The Chateau has never looked back and continues to go from strength to strength.

2005 is one of the exceptional vintages in the modern era of Bordeaux with the perfect combination of fully ripe fruit, vibrant acidity and full phenolic maturity. Whilst the top wines are built for the long run, the second wines in 2005 are now opening up beautifully, nowhere is this more true than with the Segla 2005. After tasting it last week we thought the wine was in a wonderful place right now, full of silky tannin and Margaux charm. A perfect wine for this Christmas.

Don’t miss this classic and elegant Margaux from a truly exceptional vintage.
