Jean-Marc Quarin June - 2001
Jean-Marc Quarin
Dark red color. Medium intensity. Evolved. Nose of medium intensity. Another note of new wood. Mushroom touch. Quite cool. When stirred more open and above all more fruity, fresher, younger than Angelus. Soft and nuanced attack, developing on a caressing structure, which quickly becomes round in the mid-palate and stands out from Angelus by developing very slowly. The tannins are completely mellow, tasty and the wine leaves a nice, concentrated taste after the mid-palate until the finish. But a note of mushroom returns. Racy appearance. I take this opportunity to say that I often find this note in the wines that are aged in the old quarries of Saint-Emilion. After the stone was mined, they were often used as mushroom beds.

Firm and vivid, offering clear cherry, tobacco and cedar flavors backed by firm, round tannins; it blooms on the finish.

Château Ausone

Château Ausone produces Bordeaux Grands Crus with the Saint Emilion appellation in the south of France. This estate is one of the 4 châteaux to benefit from the Premier Grand Cru Classé A classification with the Angelus, Cheval Blanc and Pavie châteaux. Château Ausone is a small estate of only 7 hectares located on the slopes of Saint-Emilion. Built on the site of the villa of the Latin poet Ausone, the estate enjoys southern exposure, terraced vines and a balanced and very old grape variety. The cellar, carved into the rock, is extraordinary. It has been the subject of immense works to strengthen the solidity of the building.

As for the wines, reputed to take a long time to assert themselves, they are dense, intense and with an aromatic complexity that allows Ausone to rank among the very first estates in Bordeaux. The main grape varieties are Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with a majority of 55% Cabernet Franc.

Among the greatest vintages of Château Ausone, the 1982 and 1983 vintages are excellent. The 1995, grands crus of 19982008 vintage wines and 2009 wines are exceptional. Finally, the 2003 vintage wines and 2005 grands crus classés are considered to be the most extraordinary vintages, the grands crus of this vintage even obtained the score of 100/100 by Robert Parker.
