“Seduction in a glass” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown
23 May 2019

Nicolas Audebert coined the phrase the “Grand Huit”, the big eight or the rollercoaster. A clever play on words that appositely sums up the sentiments of vignerons and the style of the vintage. As ever, there is a refreshing honesty from the Canon, Rauzan and Berliquet team – this after all, was a vintage with tumultuous ups and downs that ultimately ended in elation.

Since Nicolas assumed control in 2015 both Rauzan and Canon have experienced unparalleled success. 2018 is no different, however, tables have been turned. Whilst both wines are off the charts in terms of quality, our team clearly felt that Rauzan Segla has got one over its Right Bank compatriot. That is not to say that Canon is anything but exceptional, it’s just that Rauzan Segla has achieved a new level of excellence. Even the other-worldly 2010 and 2015 don’t come close – this is a masterpiece, a wine that towers above the rivals. For us it was one of the wines of the vintage; a view echoed by many of the major critics.
