Chateau La Chapelle d'Ausone 2004 Chateau Ausone
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Proprietor Vauthier’s second wine, the 2004 Chapelle d’Ausone (400 cases produced) is a beautiful effort. It may be the finest second wine currently being made in Bordeaux. It displays much of the same character as its bigger sibling, with sweeter tannins, a softer, more plush personality, and more accessibility. A liquid minerality intermixed with blue and black fruits as well as floral notes are all present. Drink this beauty over the next 15 or more years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (87)
Aromas of raspberries and new oak, with hints of sandalwood. Medium-bodied, with fine, silky tannins and a medium finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
