Tasting Notes

The 2015 Ségla reveals baked cherries, hoisin and light cedar aromas on the nose, which is tightly wound at first but gains intensity with aeration. The oak is neatly integrated. The very well-balanced, medium-bodied palate features firm tannin, commendable purity, smooth texture and just a touch of white pepper and graphite toward the persistent finish. This is a classy Margaux to add to many others. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2015 Segla bursts with notes of black cherries, redcurrant jelly, and juicy blackberries, plus hints of dried mint and dark chocolate. The medium to full-bodied palate is coated with bright black fruits plus grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with lovely purity.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Independent, November 2022

A bright ruby colour in the glass, this has an expressive and expansive nose of cherry blossom, sweet plum and wild flowers. The palate is plump, polished and refined with soft and fully integrated tannins allowing the fruit core to shine. This is fleshy and moreish, all cherries, plums and a little cassis. There are hints of violet that lift the luscious fruit, and the cut of vibrant acidity keeps the palate fresh and moreish. The creamy, long finish is unerring and pure. An absolute knockout Ségla, maybe the best ever. Sumptuous already, this will drink well over the next 8-10 years or more.
