The tannins are still brooding away giving a dark firm character to the wine. Blackberry fruits and acidity are there but still well buried in the tannins. - R.V.

The 2007 Ausone is a candidate for one of the wines of the vintage rivaling Pavie and Lafite Rothschild. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a beautiful nose of spring flowers raspberries black currants and crushed rocks. The wine is dense medium to full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin as well as a surprisingly evolved forward style. It is one of the few Ausones I have tasted that can be drunk with great pleasure at this stage yet it promises to evolve for two decades.

Inky black cherry, blueberry, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose, plus a whiff of roasted meat that quickly dissipated. Dense and chewy on the palate, with very good intensity to its dark fruit, leather and chocolate flavors and a pronounced rocky quality. Showed increasing vibrancy with aeration but there's no easy sweetness to this soil-driven wine. Struck me as a bit energetically extracted. Finishes broad and long, with substantial dusty tannins. I'd forget about this for at least a few years.

Berry and milk chocolate aromas, with hints of flowers, follow through to a medium-to-full body, with very silky tannins and a delicious, fruity finish. Subtle and pretty, balanced and gorgeous. So refined and caressing... Berry and milk chocolate aromas, with hints of flowers, follow through to a medium-to-full body, with very silky tannins and a delicious, fruity finish.
