Chateau Ausone Bordeaux Blend 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"I love the tobacco, berry, cigar box, toasty oak, ripe fruit and fresh mushroom flavors in this full-bodied red, which has ultralayerd tannins and vanilla, new oak and berry character. Powerful and superconcentrated, with great length. This is a muscular, full throttle wine, racing very, very fast...100." WS 3/08.

A tiny production of just over 1 300 cases will make the 2005 Ausone impossible to find but proprietor Alain Vauthier continues to exhibit the Midas touch with his perfectionist efforts at this estate. This brilliant blue/black-hued offering reveals an extraordinarily youthful but promising nose of incense blueberries blackberries currants licorice and crushed rocks. This intense 2005 boasts powerful super-layered multidimensional flavors with tremendous extraction yet they come acros

A tiny production of just over 1 300 cases will make the 2005 Ausone impossible to find but proprietor Alain Vauthier continues to exhibit the Midas touch with his perfectionist efforts at this estate. This brilliant blue/black-hued offering reveals an extraordinarily youthful but promising nose of incense blueberries blackberries currants licorice and crushed rocks. This intense 2005 boasts powerful super-layered multidimensional flavors with tremendous extraction yet they come across as incredibly sublime even delicate for such a stunningly concentrated full-bodied effort. A masterpiece of concentration and balance it will no doubt be drinking well a century from now. Anticipated maturity: 2030-2080+. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
