This beautiful wine is a pleasure to drink. A very nice wine to pop open, decant, and let sit before enjoying on a balmy evening with honeysuckle and hay in the air. A nice balcony wine, whether it be the city or the countryside, or the seaside. This wine will give notes of truffle, blackberries, and boysenberries. With medium tannins and an acidity that will leave the palate refreshed, this wine offers notes of dark fruits, cream, tobacco, and vanilla on the palate. Afterthoughts of cocoa and plum jam are noticed in the finish. This is a medium-bodied wine with a decent length on the palate. It really is as complex as the name suggests and is most definitely worth a try.
For food pairings, beef, lamb, chicken, and game are the perfect matches. The perfect match for this wonderful wine would be tournedos à la bordelaise. This beautiful dish features thick beef tenderloin steaks grilled perfectly and served with a bordelaise sauce. A bordelaise sauce is typically made with a combination of finely chopped shallots, butter, and spices such as thyme, bay leaves, salt, and pepper, which is reduced in dry red wine until thickened and smooth in consistency. The wine used in the sauce is typically Bordeaux. Château Rauzan-Ségla - Margaux - 2ème Grand Cru Classé is the perfect wine to accompany this dish, or for simply sitting and enhancing your experience as you watch the world go by from the comfort of a nice chair.
