Information on the vintageRed Bordeaux :55
The second of the renowed twin vintages. Whereas the 1899s had finesse and delicacy, the sort of feminine charm later associated with the 1929s and 1953s, the 1900s were more structured - to use a fashionable expression - well balanced and more obviously impressive. But it was also a superabundant vintage following perfect weather conditions and the wines were uniformly excellent.

My notes indicate that the 1900 Ausone had a 90-point nose and 99-point flavors. Most Ausones are big on bouquet but short on flavor. It is unbelievable that a 94-year old wine could have this much richness and flavor. The huge nose of roasted cloves, coffee, and honeyed red fruits is followed by a wine with super-sweetness, big, jammy, alcoholic, ripe flavors, and remarkable length with elevated alcohol. The light color is akin to a rusty-colored white Zinfandel. The extreme sweetness makes me think the fermentation halted and the wine has some residual sugar. This stunning wine remains fresh and lively.

Château informations

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 19761982 and 1983 vintages are excellent. The 199519982008 and 2009 wines are exceptional. Finally, the 20002003 and 2005 vintages are considered to be the most extraordinary vintages, the grands crus of this vintage even obtained the excellent score of 100/100 by Robert Parker.
