Chapelle d'Ausone 2008
Tasting Notes Chapelle d'Ausone 2008
A beautiful perfume of black raspberries, black cherries, black currants, licorice, damp earth, truffles and asphalt soars from this deep, full-bodied 2008. The tannins are sweet, the concentration level impressive and the wine is round and generous. It is ideal for drinking over the next 15-20 years.
Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. Like the Grand Vin, this samples was showing some reduction on the nose. The palate is sweet on the entry, quite fleshy and supple with a generous confectionary finish. Very polished and classy, I suspect a less reductive bottle would be very fine. Tasted January 2012.
