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.

The 2015 Ségla is a very pretty second wine with lovely aromatic complexity and depth. Succulent and racy, the 2015 expresses the radiant personality of the vintage nicely. Savory herb and floral touches add aromatic nuances throughout. The 2015 is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. 2020 - 2030

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 aboslute knockout Ségla, maybe the best ever. Sumptuous already, this will drink well over the next 8-10 years or more.
