Winemaker's Notes

One of the finest second wines of Bordeaux, the 2008 La Chapelle d'Ausoneexhibits abundant amounts of sweet blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed withhints of ripe cherries, loamy soil, licorice, and earth. This relativelyevolved, fleshy, full-bodied beauty should drink well for 15 or more years.Onceagain, Alain Vauthier has produced a wine that flirts with perfection. As Istated in my bottled 2006 Bordeaux report, over the last decade no proprietorhas produced as many virtually perfect wines read more...One of the finest second wines of Bordeaux, the 2008 La Chapelle d'Ausoneexhibits abundant amounts of sweet blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed withhints of ripe cherries, loamy soil, licorice, and earth.
