Chateau Rauzan Segla 魯臣世家酒莊
Château Rauzan-Ségla is 130-acre estate in the Margaux appellation. It is a Second Growth estate, but it is often called a “super second,” a flattering term meaning that the wines of the château can be as remarkable as First Growths. In the 17th century Rauzan-Ségla was part of a large estate owned by Pierre de Mesures de Rauzan, a Bordeaux wine trader. The estate was eventually divided into four separate estates. After several changes of ownership – and a confusing and temporary name change to Rausan-Ségla – the estate was in 1994 sold to the Wertheimer family, which owns Chanel, the fashion and perfume conglomerate. The Wertheimers added property to the estate, which now includes 150 acres. Major improvements were made and the name was changed back to Rauzan-Ségla. To celebrate its 350th anniversary in 2011, the estate bottled its 2009 vintage with a label drawn by fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld. Winemaker and managing director is John Kolasa. The vineyards are planted to 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 2% each Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Some 8,000 cases are produced annually. The estate's second wine is Ségla.
