I would expect the Rauzan-Segla to be approachable now, given the vintage and the Merlot content. If it were my bottle, I'd probably be drinking it between 3 and 5 years from now. I have been somewhat disappointed by the '07s I've tried, as they have lacked concentration, and in many cases, received the same oak treatment as a much more powerful vintage. The end result is a wine which would have otherwise been a nice, early drinking, light bodied claret, marred by a heavy oak streak.
