2014 Ausone

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2014
Appellation: St Emilion
100 (JS)
Spectacularly located overlooking St Emilion, Chateau Ausone is in the elite of elite estates in Bordeaux. The tiny vineyard lies on the sloping, steep, southwestern facing hillside outside the walls of St.Emilion and is planted to some of the most legendary Cabernet Franc in all of Bordeaux. Since Alain Vauthier and his family bought out the Dubois-Challons in the mid 1990s, the quality of the estate's wines have rocketed and since the breakthrough 2000 vintage fewer estates can have done as much to maintain, and grow, their heralded traditions. Alain’s daughter Pauline has been increasingly involved and this Premier Grand Cru Classe ‘A’ property looks to be in exceptional hands for the future.

Tasting Notes and Scores

95

Neal Martin

The 2014 Ausone has an almost pastille-like purity on the nose, equally red and black fruit laced with allspice and clove, gaining complexity all the time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fleshy and generous, a fine bead of acidity, gaining volume and mass towards the succulent, velvety smooth final third. This is a very seductive wine with not a hair out of place, though it is not the most cerebral Ausone that I have tasted in recent years. More an Ausone intent on sensory pleasure. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. - vinous.com, March 2018

James Suckling

Fabulous aromas of currants, rose petals, dried strawberries and hints of lemon rind. Wet earth and chalk. Full and dense and so compacted and squeezed. What a texture. Phenomenal. Needs five to six years to open, but it’s a joy to taste. Amazing. Such energy! From organically grown grapes as well. I am in awe.

Jancis Robinson

Not especially deep colour. Very sweet but much better oak management than at one time. Chestnut intensity. And some freshness. But it does not leap out of the glass yelling ‘top wine’! Something a bit sinewy. Plays the sweetness and freshness cards rather than alcohol and density. Quite playful.

Antonio Galloni

The 2014 Ausone is a bit unusual in that the blend includes 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot. Rose petal, mint, crushed flowers and red stone fruits all flesh out in a racy, beautifully layered wine long on class and pedigree. Today, the 2014 is a bit inward, but the aromatics are striking, while the flavors are bright, chiseled and beautifully articulated throughout. Given the high percentage of Franc, I expect the 2014 will continue to grow during its elevage.
