Château Ausone Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker gives this wine a perfect score of 100 points and writes: "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+."

Powerful and superconcentrated, with great length. This is a mus... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Ausone 750ml
