Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 94

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chapelle d’Ausone 2010 has a tightly coiled bouquet that is very linear and controlled, not as expressive as its peers but with fine mineralite. The palate is tight on the entry with crisp tannins, bright tart cherry fruit and plenty of energy. It builds in the mouth to quite a structured, linear finish that does not forsake breeding and class. If only all second wines were as good as this. Tasted January 2014. [Neal Martin, 01/01/2014]

Vinous – 90+

Good deep red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of blueberry, menthol and flowers. Juicy, concentrated and tactile, with a distinctly penetrating quality to the blueberry, licorice, fresh herb and mineral flavors. A bit lean and wound-up today in an Old World way, this nicely concentrated second wine needs time to soften in the bottle. [Stephen Tanzer, 07/01/2013]

JancisRobinson.com – 16.5

65% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very dark purple. Very sweet and rich and punchy. Just a bit green and sinewy on the end. Not quite a complete wine. The less successful grapes went into this I assume? [06/04/2011]

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2025
