Critic Notes

Distinctly blue tinge. Very rich and sweet with polished texture. Modern style but without exaggeration. Attractive leafy aroma and zest. Not that big a wine but a well balanced one. Should drink well.www.jancisrobinson.com, 14 May 2009

Score: 17-/20Jancis Robinson

Fresh and floral, with berry and raspberry aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe tannins and a licorice, berry and milk chocolate character. Displays a beautiful core of fruit. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2009

Score: 89-92/100Wine Spectator

Although reserved and shut down following bottling, the 2008 exhibits a dense plum/ruby/purple color, abundant tannin, an unmistakable minerality and a long finish despite its structured, backward, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Sweet blue and black fruits have to be coaxed from the glass. Cellar it for 5-7 years and enjoy it over the following 20-25. May 2011, www.robertparker.com

Score: 90-/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 ...

Château Ausone: The Ethereal Estate of Saint-Émilion

Chateau Ausone has, without question, been producing some of the finest wines in the world for many decades, but ...

Isabel Ferrando on finding the 'Saint Prefert identity'
"Proprietress Isabel Ferrando has taken her Saint Prefert estate to France’s highest level, and she’s unquestionably making some of the most profound wines on earth today, including both reds and whites." So said Rhone expert Jeb Dunnuck on release of the 2016 vintage. The names Isabel Ferrando and Saint Prefert have indeed become synonymous with Southern Rhone of the highest ...
