The second wine of Ausone again doesn't taste like a second wine! It's too good!! Dense and exciting with blackberry blueberry and currants. Full and powerful. It takes off at the end.

It takes off at the end. The precision and pinpointed dark fruit character is fantastic.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chapelle d'Ausone 2010 has a tightly coiled bouquet that is very linear and controlled, not as expressive as its peers but with fine mineralite. The palate is tight on the entry with crisp tannins, bright tart cherry fruit and plenty of energy. It builds in the mouth to quite a structured, linear finish that does not forsake breeding and class. If only all second wines were as good as this. Tasted January 2014.

Focused and taut with racy linzer torte and spice notes backed by dark licorice. There's lots of kirsch on the back end and this is firm but not overly so. -J.M.

Like its big brother the wine will be aged in 100% new oak for about 20 months. This is the debut vintage for Chapelle d'Ausone to feature a large percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the assemblage. Smoke cassis stone and fresh blackberry aromas pair with a medium full bodied sweet round tannic blackberry and chocolate finish.
