Tasting Note:

Nicolas Audebert has taken the reigns from John Kolasa at Rauzan Segla and Canon. It was a dream start for him with 2015; not only did St Emilion and Margaux enjoy the best of the conditions, his two estates, both owned by the Wertheimer brothers, were amongst the most sought after wines of the vintage. It seems appropriate that the family who owns Chanel should produce such stylish clarets. One can hardly have a couture wine, but it seems that Nicolas has fashioned something that perfectly fits our palates. Tasted a couple of times during the primeur week and in February just after blending, this is a serious, introverted, cool fruited, mineral effort and a worthy successor to the splendid 2015. This is more reserved with greater tension and a really delightful sappy quality. Pipe tobacco notes, wild black berries and fine black cherries; this is very smart indeed with really persistent and graceful tannins. Power without force.
