La Chapelle d’Ausone 2015 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

La Chapelle d’Ausone 2015 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fine, fruity, relatively charming, relatively precise and offers harmony and elegance. It reveals notes of boysenberry and cassis combined with a discreet hint of blueberry, Zan and tobacco. The palate is fruity, fleshy, balanced, suave, quite gourmand and offers minerality, freshness, a nice volume, a fine grain as well as a beautiful and silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, plum and slight notes of black cherry associated with slight notes of juicy blueberry, licorice as well as a discreet hint of chocolate and fine touches of sweet spices (Bourbon vanilla, a hint of cardamom). Tannins are fine and velvety. Good length and persistence with notes of juicy fruits, a fine hint of toasted oak and toasted hazelnut. The finish is relatively powerful.
