Liv-ex survey: ‘best’ wines of Bordeaux 2018

10: Ausone and Haut-Brion

Ausone
Antonio Galloni: 97-100
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 98-100
Julia Harding MW: 17.5+

Haut-Brion
Antonio Galloni: 93-96
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 97-99+
Julia Harding MW: 17.5

A joint tenth place for two heavyweights from the Left and Right banks. Ausone has received a lot of critical praise as is clear to see from the three scores above.

A split between two estates from either side of the Gironde in many ways rather neatly sums up the vintage which many have noted did not seem to favour either the Médoc or Libournnais which can often be the case.
