2008 Château Ausone
Ch. Ausone was our first stop in St émilion when tasting the 2008s and,<br/>it has to be said, it was quite an experience. We had heard that the quality<br/>was good on the Right Bank but we really were spoilt by our first taste of it.<br/>The entire Ausone stable showed very well but the Grand Vin was incredible; it<br/>was full of glorious dark fruit, so concentrated that one had the impression it<br/>was all concertina-ed together, just waiting to spring out at a future date.
SBerry Bros & Rudd review: A lovely, silky smoothness denoted its First Growth quality, and there was depth and complexity with warm, sweet vanilla spice and a wonderful balsamic tang on the finish. 'Wow' featured in most of our notes; this was simply gorgeous.
