Château Ausone 1990Lo Château Ausone è un vino rosso 1er grand cru classé A di Saint-Emilion. L'assemblaggio è composto da Cabernet Franc e Merlot.
Alla degustazione, lo Château Ausone 1990 offre inizialmente aromi d'ambra, di torta alla frutta, di rocce schiacciate e d'incenso, prima di liberare fragranze zuccherate, fruttate e minerali. Questo vino si bonifica col tempo, dopo essere stato un pò chiuso in passato.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
After revealing some amber at the edge as well as copious aromas of fruitcake, crushed rocks, incense, and a weedy character, the 1990 Ausone offers up sweet, jammy fruit notes as well as a firm finish with the tell-tale crushed rock minerality that this estate often achieves. The aromatics suggest a fully mature wine, but in the mouth, the firm structure and density indicate this effort needs more time. This wine gives off mixed signals, and I suspect it will last much longer than it appears, but only time will tell. There is a lot to like here, but the 1990 is not one of the most profound Ausones, such as those made since 1998. Owners should try a bottle and make up their own minds, but I think it has another 10- to 15-year window of maximum pleasure.
