Critic Notes

A ravishing nose mingles high-toned floral essences with intimations of the ripe pear shadowed by poire distillate, honeydew, and Persian melon that lusciously inform the polished palate of Pichlers’ 2012 Riesling Smaragd Loibenberg. There is a faintly mealy, diffuse finish here, lacking the clarity or complex interplay of flavors that characterized the best wines of the present collection. That said, this is impressively persistent, and the nose and mid-palate are already well worth the price of admission. I would tentatively plan to enjoy this through 2020.

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 ...
