Scores and tasting notes
Tasted at Chateau Ausone. The bouquet on the Chapelle d'Ausone is very well defined with intense blackberry, cassis and seaweed aromas, plus a ferrous note in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a pure, ripe, sensual entry and to be honest, you are just smitten from here on in. Beautifully balanced with perfectly pitched acidity
Neal Martin - Wine Journal Mar 2013
There is an amazing depth of berries, orange blossom and minerals. Wet earth too. Full body, with a super velvety palate of super polished tannins. It deep and soulful. It goes for minutes on the palate. This is very structured and muscular. Nearly always one of my favorite second wines. Try after 2018.

The 2010 Chapelle Ausone is a very elegant wine with rather tart acids, this second wine of Ausone is medium-bodied, has dark raspberry and blueberry fruit notes with some hints of wet stones. Pure, nicely textured, but rather backward, this wine needs further bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030. One of the other perfectionist, compulsive producers in St.-Emilion is Alain Vauthier, who is now capably assisted by his daughter.
