Critic Notes

Lots of dark fruits with intense leather and spices on the nose. Full body, with super fine tannins and lovely fruit. Goes on for a long time. jamessuckling.com

Score: 92-93/100James Suckling

Quite ripe, but with excellent focus, as the crushed blueberry, currant and fig fruit shows nice definition and length. There's lots of graphite and licorice notes, with a perfumy floral edge. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Score: 90-93/100Wine Spectator

There is a touch of over-ripeness on the nose with blueberry jam, mulberry and soy. Moderate definition. The palate is medium-bodied with toasty oak on the entry, low acidity, quite savoury thanks to the Cabernet Franc towards the finish. Not bad. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Score: 88-90/100Neal Martin

Very dark. Dense and dry – quite unlike the style I remember from, say eight years ago. Green on the finish. Racy nose and then some green notes on the end. A few too many green pips perhaps? But there is solid good intention here with some fine well-integrated fruit. Really quite awkward and chewy. Some fine elements but not perfectly handled? jancisrobinson.com

Score: 15.5-/20Jancis Robinson

This is a stylish wine made with a light touch. Berliquet in 2010 is well balanced with subtle flavours and good length. The volatile acidity (VA) in this wine is slightly high and may put off those whose tolerance for VA is low. asianpalate.com

Score: 87-88/100Jeannie Cho Lee MW

There are seductive aspects to this wine, including ripe black cherry and raspberry fruits as well as nice glycerin, body and fleshiness, but the toasty oak comes through in a rather glaring fashion and the tannins also pick up in the finish, providing a slight astringency to this otherwise well-made wine. It probably needs a few more months at minimum to settle down in the bottle. Feb 2013, www.robertparker.com

Score: 87-/100Robert Parker

Interview with Nicolas Audebert – Chief Winemaker at Chateau Rauzan Segla, Chateau Canon and Chateau Berliquet
The Rauzan Segla 2018 has been met with rave reviews. At what point did you feel you had made a special wine? It is a long process in a technician's mind as the picture of the vintage is getting clearer and clearer from the picking to the “dégustations d’assemblage” (blending tastings).  Each vintage gives me a particular emotion, the ...
