2011 Château Rauzan-Gassies Magnum (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot)

TASTING NOTES Château Rauzan-Gassies 2011:

  • View: Deep red purple. dark color.
  • Nose: Delicate, very powerful and complex. smoked oak, toast, cherry, pink, peach, clove and cinnamon.
  • Mouth: smooth, powerful and enveloping flavor. ripe tannins. well balanced body.

Persistence: 10/11 seconds.

sidebars: black fruit, black currant.

I took it with a connoisseur of wines.
Cherry colour. Aromas of leather and tobacco pipe. A taste of nothing in particular just wine.
A good Château Rauzan Gassies who goes well with beef stew.

I went to Margaux to buy it.
Red ruby colour with reddish brown edges. It has a strong smell of caramel. A red fairly astringent.
