Winemaker's Notes

There are approximately 500 cases of the second wine, the 2005 La Chapelled'Ausone, which makes a mockery of many grand vins produced at thisestate in the fifties, sixties, and seventies. Made in the style of its biggersibling, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose ofcrushed rocks, figs, blackberries, raspberries, smoke, and earth.
