Tasting Notes:
Youthful but very promising St-Emilion from the family that owns Ausone. Quite firm tannins; this will be best from 2015.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2025
Cépagement:
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Carmenere
Critic Reviews:
'A sleeper of the vintage, Ausone’s proprietor, Alain Vauthier, produces this beautiful St.-Emilion. It possesses a sumptuous bouquet of crushed rocks, incense, raspberries, boysenberries, and a touch of cherries. Some earthiness intrudes on the palate, but it adds complexity and nuance rather than detracting from the wine’s beautiful fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with admirable elegance and purity as well as ripe tannin, this beauty can be enjoyed over the next 15+ years' 90/100 (Wine Advocate)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
