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

The dense purple-hued 2010 Chapelle d'Ausone offers a perfumed nose of blue, red and black fruits, licorice, incense and crushed rocks. Deep, full-bodied, round and generous, this wine will offer magnificent drinking over the next 20-25+ years.

65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon produce the blend. Like its big brother, the wine will be aged in 100% new oak for about 20 months.

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.

A blend of 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, this has a ripe, well defined nose of raspberry, dark plum and a touch of cedar wood. There is very fine lift here.

There is very fine lift here. The palate is very smooth and silky on the entry, gentle but insistent grip with structured, tannic, slightly gritty but very focused entry. Very pure.as usual. Drink 2013-2020+

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.

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.
