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
