Château Ausone 1988 - Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé

About the domain:

Château Ausone has been owned by the Vauthier family since 1974. It was previously owned by the Dubois Chalon family.

It is a confidential vineyard of only 7 HA which produces on average less than 25,000 bottles per year. Extremely low quantity compared to the other great castles of Saint-Emilion and Bordeaux in general.

The grape variety is divided equally between Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

About the 1988 vintage in Saint-Emilion:

The 1988 vintage was marked in Bordeaux by heavy rains during the harvest period. Some Châteaux harvested too early, others on the contrary made the right choice to wait a bit. Ausone has produced a tannic and powerful wine that ages particularly well.

Find below the tasting notes of D. Fornage tasted in April 2011:

Aromas all in lace and elegance. Red fruits mingle with notes of vanilla and noble spices.

The wine is quite "straight" and a little strict in terms of tannins. The style is classic and pleasant.
