Un vino tinto mineral Ausone
Chateau Ausone es un vino tinto 1er grand cru classé A del nombre Saint-Emilion. El conjunto está hecho de Cabernet Franc y Merlot.
En la cata, el Ausone de 1990 ofrece primero en la nariz aromas de ámbar, pastel de frutas, roca triturada e incienso, antes de liberar fragancias dulces, frutales y minerales. Este vino mejora con el tiempo, habiendo estado un poco cerrado en el pasado. Debería estar borracho ahora :
Parker : 91 / 100

Wine Advocate-Parker :
After revealing some amber at the edge as well as copious aromas of fruitcake, crushed rocks, incense, and a weedy character, the 1990 Ausone offers up sweet, jammy fruit notes as well as a firm finish with the tell-tale crushed rock minerality that this estate often achieves. The aromatics suggest a fully mature wine, but in the mouth, the firm structure and density indicate this effort needs more time. This wine gives off mixed signals, and I suspect it will last much longer than it appears, but only time will tell. There is a lot to like here, but the 1990 is not one of the most profound Ausones, such as those made since 1998. Owners should try a bottle and make up their own minds, but I think it has another 10- to 15-year window of maximum pleasure. Release price: ($3500.00/case)
