JancisRobinson.com – 16-

Tasted blind. A bit heavy and overripe. Needs more freshness. Angular and awkward. [22/01/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2034

Vinous – 94

The 2016 Chapelle d’Ausone has a pure, seductive bouquet, offering scents of black cherries, cassis and violet petals that soar from the glass while maintaining wonderful precision. Perhaps compared to the 2016 La Clotte, the new oak (80%) will need longer to fully assimilate, but there is great density and grip to this Chapelle d’Ausone, and the very long and quite intense finish bodes well for the future. One of the best ever made. [Neal Martin, 24/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2045

Robert Parker – 94+

A blend of 56% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Chapelle d’Ausone sings of black raspberries, kirsch and plum preserves with hints of unsmoked cigars, pencil lead, lavender and chocolate box plus a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied and fantastically elegant in the mouth, the elegant red and black fruit layers are beautifully framed by firm yet fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and minerally. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 30/11/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040
