CHAPELLE D'AUSONE, 2005

SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU

“Ausone's second wine is better than most other Saint Emilions but there are only 500 cases of it in 2009. A 70:30 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, receiving the same elevage as the Grand Vin itself. This has a very strong resemblance to its big brother with wonderful freshness, focus, intensity and definition. Opulent black fruit with a velvety texture. Super-silky, elegant and long. Even this humble second wine ranks among the best in St Emilion this year.” - Farr Vintners
