Chanel’s Rauzan-Segla follows 2019 downward trend
Margaux second growth, Château Rauzan-Segla, owned by fashion house Chanel, has followed the downward trend and dropped its 2019 release price by 25%.
As reported by Liv-ex, Rauzan-Segla 2019 has been released at €54 per bottle ex-negociant, a drop of 25% on the 2018 release price of €72.
The wine is being offered by the trade for £684 per case, down 24% on the 2018’s opening case price of £900 per case and flat on the 2017 price.
Rauzan-Segla was a top mover in the Liv-ex 2019 Power 100, jumping from 106th to 63rd place on the list.
Jane Anson gave Rauzan-Segla 2019 a 96 point score. “There is the precision of Rauzan Ségla that is reminiscent of the 2016, less of the immediate voluptuous impact of 2018 but the density becomes extremely clear in the glass,” she said.
“Today’s release is coming to the market below a number of acclaimed recent vintages, such as 2015, 2016 and 2018.
“Buyers looking for physical stock at a discount might wish to consider the 2012, available at £560 a case,” Liv-ex said.
Also out of the blocks was the 2019 grand vin from St.-Emilon estate, Canon, which was released at €69.6 per bottle ex-négociant, down 17.1% on the 2018 release price of €84.
As reported by Liv-ex, Canon 2019 is being offered by the trade at £876 per case, a 16.1% dip on the 2018 opening price of £1,044 per case.
Like Rauzan-Segla, Canon is owned by Chanel. Nicolas Audebert is chief winemaker at both properties.
Jane Anson gave Canon 2019 a 98 point score, describing it as “sleek, elegant and appealing even before you get your nose near the glass”.
“Buyers looking for value may consider the 2014 and 2017 vintage, at 95 points from Neal Martin, they stand at a significant discount to today’s release,” Liv-ex said.
