The 1996 Chateau Rauzan-Gassies is a testament to the elegance and complexity that Margaux wines can offer. With a medium to deep ruby red hue, this wine presents a bouquet of ripe dark fruits and cedary aromas that promise a savory and classic profile. On the palate, the interplay of red fruits and cedar notes is complemented by a reasonable acidity that structures the wine without overpowering its delicate balance. The mid-palate is characterized by firm and drying tannins, leading to a balanced alcohol presence and a fair length finish that leaves a cedary impression. This wine, with its charming and fruity nature, is a delightful expression of the renowned Haut-Médoc terroir.
