Ausone, St. Emilion


A masterpiece in the making, proprietor Alain Vauthier`s 2009 Ausone boasts a dense purple color along with notes of powdered chalk, crushed rocks and wild blue, red and black fruits. Extravagantly rich with great minerality, precision and freshness as well as a voluptuous texture (unusual for a baby Ausone), this is an extraordinary wine. Sadly, there are fewer than 1,200 cases … for the world. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060+
