2016 La Chapelle d'Ausone, Saint-Emilion, France

Chateau Ausone is a highly regarded wine estate in the Saint-Émilion region of northeastern Bordeaux. It is one of the prestigious few Saint-Émilion producers with Premier Grand Cru Classé A status – and one of only two estates (the other being Château Cheval Blanc) to hold this status since the inception of the classification in 1955.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

(Rating 94+) A blend of 56% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 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.

Vinous

The 2016 Chapelle d'Ausone offers intense black cherries, raspberry coulis and marmalade aromas on the nose, manifesting more delineation in the glass over the course of 10-15 minutes. The palate is medium-bodied with fine­grained tannins, very pure black fruit and tangible mineralite and tension on the finish. This is pure class, a wine of nobility and deliciousness. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. Reviewed by Neal Martin, Issue date: January 2020. Drinking window: 2022 - 2045.
