Chateau Ausone 2007 Saint Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classe 5 x 75cl / 13%
This lot contains five bottles of Château Ausone 2007 Saint Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux, a blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot.
'The 2007 Ausone is a candidate for one of the wines of the vintage, rivaling Pavie and Lafite Rothschild. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a beautiful nose of spring flowers, raspberries, black currants, and crushed rocks. The wine is dense, medium to full-bodied, and pure with sweet tannin as well as a surprisingly evolved, forward style. It is one of the few Ausones I have tasted that can be drunk with great pleasure at this stage, yet it promises to evolve for two decades. Drink 2010-2030. 94/100' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 2010
