Chateau Ausone 1979
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Label||Slightly bin soiled, with pen written|
A still youthful dark ruby with a pink rim, this wine shows notes of wet earth, red currants, mushroom, and spice box. The wine is medium-bodied, has a sort of liquid minerality, good sweet fruit on the attack, but then a relatively dry, astringent, harsh finish. This is typical of so many vintages of this wine that are just difficult for anyone with a modern-day taste for fruit to appreciate.
