La Chapelle d’Ausone 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is aromatic, fresh, racy (limestone/terroir), precise and offers elegance, a fine intensity as well as power. It reveals notes of cassis, crunchy berries and fresh wild strawberry associated with small touches of fresh raspberry, hints of spices as well as subtle touches of tobacco, flowers/violet and almond. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good freshness, a good definition, tension, an acid frame, precision, finesse, a beautiful texture, a fine density as well as a beautiful fine grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, juicy strawberry and more slightly raspberry associated with small touches of cherry, very discreet touches of flowers, almond, toasted and oak. Tannins are fine and slightly firm. Fine gourmandize on the finish (on hints of toasted and toasted bread).
