Tasting Notes Chapelle d'Ausone 2015

Two-thirds of the crop went into the Grand Vin in 2015, but Ausone’s second label is still very impressive indeed. Perfumed and silky, with effortless oak integration, fine-boned tannins and nuanced red and black fruits, it lingers on the palate. One for those of us who can’t afford Ausone... Drink: 2022-30

The 2015 Chapelle d'Ausone is a blend of 45% Cabernet Franc, 45% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 29 September and 15 October, matured in 85% new oak for 20 months. Pauline Vauthier commented that it was relatively easy to parse the lots between grand vin and deuxième vin this year. The nose is a little broody at first, a touch of mintiness coming through the black cherry and cassis scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of dark chocolate on the entry, plenty of cassis fruit, fine tannin with a gentle grip towards the finish that feels a little more structured than recent vintages. This will probably offer 8-10 years' pleasure, possibly more.

Black! Good freshness on the nose. Very sweet start - fermented blackcurrant pastilles - and finishes a little dry at the moment.
