Ausone's firmly-structured, tannic 1992 reluctantly reveals a nose of dusty, flowery red fruits, wood, and minerals. Light-bodied and shallow, with cherry fruit flavors intermingled with the taste of herbs, this wine appears to lack a finish, depth, and intensity. Too tannic and sinewy to enjoy over the near-term, Ausone's 1992 is a likely candidate to dry out before its tannins ever melt away. *** Note: No 1991 was produced under the Ausone label. * Ausone's soft, delicate 1992 reveals a pretty nose of dusty, flowery red fruits. Light-bodied and shallow, with cherry fruit flavors intermingled with the taste of nuts and herbs, its finish lacks grip and intensity. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Chateau Ausone is a Bordeaux wine estate from the Saint Emilion appellation, situated in the Saint Emilion region in Bordeaux, France. It is one of only four wines, alongside Chateau Angelus, Cheval Blanc and Pavie to be ranked Premier Grand Cru Classe (A) in the Saint-Emilion classification for wine. The winery is located on the Right Bank of France’s Bordeaux wine region. The winery also produces a second wine named Chapelle d’Ausone.
Many claim the high quality wine originating from the Chateau is due to the soil composition in the area, a blend of sand and clay residing on limestone which is unique to the area. Due to the smaller nature of this vineyard (a total of 7 hectares), the entire harvest can be picked over the course of two afternoons.
