Chapelle d'Ausone (2016)

New

A blend of 56% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple coloured 2016 Chapelle d'Ausone sings of black raspberries, kirsch and plum preserves with hints of unsmoked cigars, pencil lead, lavender and chocolate box plus a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied and fantastically elegant in the mouth, the red and black fruit layers are beautifully framed by firm yet fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and minerally.

    Chateau Ausone is named after Decimus Magnus Ausonius, professor and political adviser to the Roman Empire who was born in Bordeaux in 309. The origin of this association is still uncertain. From the 1970s, a prolonged conflict between co-owners Dubois-Chalon and Vauthier families prevented the running of Ausone. But in the late 1990s, the property came fully to Alain Vauthier, who now runs the chateau with the help of his daughter Pauline and consultant Michel Rolland. Designated as Premier Grand Cru Classé A in 1959, Ausone in an absolutely unique terroir.
