Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Chapelle d'Ausone is gorgeous. Supple, silky and inviting, the 2016 offers plenty of near and medium term appeal. Soft contours and lifted, floral aromatics make the 2016 very easy to enjoy, even in the early going. The 2016 spent 20 months in barrel, 100% new."- Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, (January, 2019), Ratings: 92, Drink: 2021-2036

"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 red and black fruit layers are beautifully framed by firm yet fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and minerally." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (11/30/2018, Interim Issue), Ratings: 94+, Drink: 2020-2040
