Chateau Ausone 1988

Colour is deep & bloody, but no amber on the edges, rather crimson

Nose has pure perfumed elegance, sweet herbs, cherries & blackberries

Palate – silk & velvet texture in perfect harmony with the quite luscious though elegant fruit – great mineral backbone to it – elegant structure with a whispering dovetail finish that lingers beautifully.

Very happy I have 2 more bottles.
