Tasting Notes

Vinous 98

The 2015 Ausone has a detailed, precise bouquet whose intense, graphite-infused black fruit gains intensity with each swirl. This is very sophisticated and compelling. The poised, medium-bodied palate delivers filigreed tannin, perfect acidity and an extraordinarily persistent finish that outclasses almost everything around it. This is outstanding and surely represents one of the wines of the vintage. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. [Neal Martin, 09/07/2019]

JancisRobinson.com 19/20

Tasted blind. Broad, minty, Mouton? Fresh and racy with massive charge of tannins. Opulent but flowers and freshness too. Mints. [24/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2025-2050

Robert Parker 99

"Composed of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot aged in French oak barrels, 85% new, for 20 months, the 2015 Ausone features a deep garnet-purple color and comes bounding out of the glass with expressive plum preserves, wild blueberries and cherry pie aromas plus fragrant nuances of roses, licorice, Indian spices, baker’s chocolate, new leather and cedar chest plus a touch of underbrush. Big, rich, opulent and full-bodied in the mouth, it is laden with bold blue and black fruits, superbly supported by very firm, very finely grained tannins and wonderfully seamless freshness, finishing with long-lingering exotic spice hints." [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 21/02/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2052
