- Closure: Cork
The 2016 Rauzan-Gassies has a relatively light, slightly herbaceous bouquet that does not quite deliver the exuberance of its fellow Margaux, although it is not underripe. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin on the entry, those typical traits of damp undergrowth and a touch of greenness that leads to a balanced finish that just lacks the fruit intensity of others.
Neal Martin eRobertParker.com #230 (Apr 2017)
A little tight with currant and blackberry character, a medium body and a chewy finish. Slightly lean, but this should fill out nicely in barrel.
This wine. is packed with tannins and layers of black plum-skin fruit. Certainly structured, it is likely to remain a powerful wine with excellent concentration.
The 2016 Rauzan Gassies is powerful and dense, but also a touch rustic and rough around the edges. Smoke, leather, tobacco and grilled herbs make up the distinctive flavor signatures, and the wine offers good depth in the glass, although some hard contours remain. There is plenty to look forward to, even if the tannins are a bit forbidding today.
