Château Ausone Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Ch. Ausone was our first stop in St émilion when tasting the 2008s and,<br/>it has to be said, it was quite an experience. We had heard that the quality<br/>was good on the Right Bank but we really were spoilt by our first taste of it.<br/>The entire Ausone stable showed very well but the Grand Vin was incredible; it<br/>was full of glorious dark fruit, so concentrated that one had the impression it<br/>was all concertina-ed together, just waiting to spring out at a future date.

The 2008 Ausone tasted much more forward and softer than most Ausones do at this stage, which is remarkable considering the extremely late harvest and slow, late malolactics. Nevertheless, it is a packed and stacked St.-Emilion displaying an inky/blu... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Ausone 750ml
