Château Ausone, 2008

RRP £912.4

Wonderful lift and floating fruit, the power builds and climbs upwards from start to finish, with silky tannins and a kick of salinity that comes from the limestone. It performs the neat Ausone trick of being both plush and expansive, yet with unquestionable purity and focus.
