Château Ausone, 2016

RRP £622.66

The epitome of perfumed finesse, this has a clarity of expression that runs right through the delicate but fleshy raspberry and smoke-tinged palate. It showcases the succulent power that is the signature of the vintage but is boosted and given extra lift by the limestone terroir. Stunning, with enormous persistence.
