2010 Chateau Ausone St. Emilion Bordeaux wine review, ratings and tasting notes for 2010 La Chapelle de Ausone, 2010 Fonbel, 2010 Moulin St. Georges, 2010 Simard and 2010 Haut Simard.
2010 Ausone From a blend of 55% Cabernet Franc, 45% Merlot, the wine will be aged in 100% new oak for about 20 months. 67% of the yields were placed into Ausone, the remainder will become Chapelle d’Ausone . The nose offers aromas of broken rocks, sweet, ripe, dark berries, licorice, flowers, spice, minerality and smoke. Full bodied, rich, and concentrated, this supple, intense, polished wine is filled with fresh berries, freshness, spice, jam, fennel, minerality and black cherry in the finish. 95-97 Pts
2010 Chapelle d’Ausone 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon produce the blend. Like its big brother, the wine will be aged in 100% new oak for about 20 months. This is the debut vintage for Chapelle d’Ausone to feature a large percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the assemblage. Smoke, cassis, stone and fresh blackberry aromas pair with a medium full bodied, sweet, round, tannic, blackberry and chocolate finish 92-93 Pts
I did not taste much, presently.
Great Angélus 2010 and Pape-Clément 2010.
Clinet 2010 excellent and Lascombes 2010 very good.
Pavie 2010 spectacular, as usual.
Laurent… Feel free to post just your scores in the Wine Talk forums. That would be easy for you to do and it would be fun comparing impressions.
Ausone 2009 is a mineral monster : a great wine.
Ausone 2010 not approached yet !
