ONE OF BORDEAUX’ VERY BEST WINES – ASTONISHING QUALITY
Ausone 2016 (barrel sample) 98p
Ausone 2011 96+p
Tasted in November 2014. Well-defined on the nose, deep, aristocratic. Full hammer on everything happening on the palate, which borders brutality, what a richness and length. Animal wine of highest quality. Unlimited life span!
Ausone 2010 (barrel sample) 98-99p
Tasted in April 2011. Plenty of chocolate and dark cherries silky tannins, was sensual, fleshy, very sophisticated, mega long on the palate with fat ripe tannins and perfect balance. Extraordinary stuff.
Ausone 2000 98+p
Tasted in April 2003. This wine was true fireworks of nuances, incredibly sophisticated, with fantastic complexity and enormous length. No body-builder wine here, neither a wine in light-weight class! A strong contender to get maximum rating in the future.
Ausone 1955 97p
Tasted in March 2015 during dinner at Domaine de Chevalier. Spectacular wine, truffy and utterly complex with great richness, balance and aftertaste. 60 years old, very much alive and kicking .
Ausone 1934 92p
Tasted in April 2014 during dinner at Domaine de Chevalier. Mature fruit, silky, very delicate and tasty, yet in fine balance but acidity is well-pronounced. Impressive old wine.
