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

This is a bright and fresh wine with notes of red currant framboise liquor and blackberry. There is an abundance of red fruit and exotic spice on the mid palate which offers extraordinary supple texture serious tannins and a finish that is long and intense Tightly wound at present but this is still in the its early stage. A beautiful Chapelle d'Ausone. Drink over the next 15-20 years.

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.
