TASTING NOTES

""Delicate unctuousness, subtle fruit, great refined tannin, structured length. Magnificent." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56
(WFW, 04/01/2017)

Rating: 96


"The 2016 Chapelle d'Ausone has the highest proportion of Cabernet Franc at 56% this year, complemented by 22% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Sauvignon. Matured in 80% new oak, it has a very floral, incense and rose petal-scented bouquet that blossoms from the glass. There is an underlying mineral vein here, but it may take a few years to come out. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp acidity, cohesive with good backbone, with fine salinité on the finish. It is just a fabulous Deuxième Vin." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230

"A firm and silky red with lovely plum and berry character plus hints of wet earth and rose petals. Medium-bodied, very fine and wonderfully juicy. Another wine with finesse and length." JamesSuckling.com

"One of the real standouts of the vintage, the 2016 Chapelle d'Ausone is mostly young vine Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a dollop of old-vine Merlot. Pliant, supple and inviting, the 2016 is flat-out delicious. Readers who can find the 2016 should not hesitate, as it is not really a second wine, but more of an accessible version of the Grand Vin." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
