Chapelle d’Ausone 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, concentrated, structured as well as elegant. It reveals notes of blackberry and small wild black fruits associated with small touches of violet, crushed strawberry as well as discreet hints of tonka bean / oak and a very discreet touch of spices / gray pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, frank, precise and offers a good freshness, a good structure, a slight tension, juiciness, a slight suavity, a small acidulous frame, a beautiful guideline as well as a small minerality and harmony. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry and fleshy / fresh cassis associated with small touches of wild strawberry, small red berries, violet, cornflowers as well as discreet hints of Zan, tonka bean / oak. Tannins are well-built.
