2006 Château Ausone, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A) St-Emilion

One can’t help but be impressed by Château Ausone, set at the top of a
tortuously twisted road, with its caves and chapelle dug into the
limestone cliff. It is a fittingly romantic location for one of the world’s
greatest wines. A blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot, this is
dark and brooding in the glass. The nose is exceedingly rich and dense,
with attractive black cherry and bramble fruit characters. The tannins are
firm and structured, yet ripe and well integrated with the rich core of
dark cherry, cassis and damson fruit. A stony minerality and a dart of
refreshing acidity reflect the terroir and lend backbone to the rich
succulent fruit. The balance of this wine is so finely honed that even
though it has many years ahead of it, you feel like you could almost
approach it now!
