Château Ausone

Château Ausone, 2018

Almost Médoc in approach, with cool fruit and graphite, and such precise freshness and seriousness, conjuring images of an elegant Hermes suit. Pure fruit, and focus – and a delectably juicy mid palate, with fine balancing acidity – make this wine gorgeous. The limestone really helped to retain freshness here.

Score: 97-100
