Château Ausone Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Alain Vauthier’s wines have been so remarkable since he acquired full control of Ausone that readers probably feel I have thrown my critical wits away. However, the proof is in the tasting, and the *2010 Ausone is unquestionably extraordinary*. There are 1,500 cases of this beauty, which exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as an exotic, seamless bouquet of incense, Asian spices, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Full-bodied with a striking liqueur of minerality as well as a magical combination of complexity, substance and nobility, it reveals softer tannins than I expected for this vintage, so perhaps it will be more accessible in its youth than recent Ausone vintages have tended to be. It is another prodigious effort from Vauthier that should be drinkable in 6-8 years and keep for a half century."*Robert Parker Wine Advocate (98-100 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*

55% cabernet franc and 45% merlot. Beautifully fresh aromas of crushed violet and rose petal with mocha, black currant and kirsch fill the nose. The fruit continues throughout the mid palate, which is well integrated and offers amazing texture. Viole... Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Ausone 3000ml
