K&L Notes

96 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Ausone, an equal blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc matured in 85% new oak, has a deep, introspective bouquet at first, the Cabernet Franc more expressive than the Merlot at the moment, with undergrowth and damp moss scents permeating through the black fruit, pressed violets and incense gradually surfacing and a hint of orange pith. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, extremely pure and refined with an undertow of mineralité. There is outstanding tension to this Ausone, perhaps a little more approachable compared to the wines of the 1990s, not as oppressive in terms of structure due to its unerring poise. Though I strongly suspect that it will be surpassed by the 2016, it is still a magnificent Ausone that will drink for many years. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2050." (02/2018)
