Tasting Notes

Even Ausone's second wine is special in this mediocre Bordeaux vintage. The ripe 2013 La Chapelle d'Ausone offers hints of violets and crushed rocks as well as a soft, silky richness, medium body and loads of fruit. This successful St.-Emilion may turn out to be outstanding. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (#214), August 2014

A blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, raised in 85% new oak, this has a light, floral bouquet with touches of rose petals infusing the dusty red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, pointed acidity and a simple, almost Left Bank style finish. Fine.
