Um vinho tinto mineral Ausone
O Chateau Ausone é um vinho tinto 1er grand cru classé A do nome Saint-Emilion. A montagem é feita de Cabernet Franc e Merlot.
Na degustação, o Ausone 1990 oferece inicialmente aromas de âmbar, bolo de frutas, pedras esmagadas e incenso no nariz, antes de liberar fragrâncias doces, frutadas e minerais. Este vinho melhora com o tempo, depois de ter sido um pouco fechado no passado. Deve ser consumido agora :
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)
