INFORMATION OF INTEREST Chateau Ausone 2009

TASTING NOTE

Colour: Ruby red medium, very bright.

Aroma: When it’s analyzed in the nose, there are pure aromas of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, coffee and minerals.

Taste: Wonderfully dense without being heavy, with an energy that penetrates black fruit and mineral flavours, tannins are incredibly sweet and very thin. Its stay in a barrel is only the beginning of its evolution, as the complexity of this wine will be able to take over a long period of time.

MATCHING

Next to a bowl game, the purity of this wine will take us to the heart of Saint-Émilion.
