Chateau Ausone 1982
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
Medium ruby-colored, with a pronounced smoky, herb-tinged bouquet revealing aromas of black tea, minerals, and sweet fruit, this medium-bodied 1982 exhibits a striking liquid minerality, decent acidity, and a powerful, concentrated, long finish. The 1982 Ausone is just turning the corner and beginning to reveal considerable complexity as well as finesse.
Winespectator / James Suckling (93)
A real beauty. Dark ruby color, with a garnet hue. Very fresh fruit with floral, berry and perfume character. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and long, sweet fruit.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
