The 2007 Ausone is a candidate for one of the wines of the vintage, rivaling Pavie and Lafite Rothschild. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a beautiful nose of spring flowers, raspberries, black currants, and crushed rocks. The wine is dense... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Ausone 750ml
