Tasting Notes:

A pleasant surprise when I think of what proprietor Alain Vauthier has done over the last decade, the outstanding 1982 Ausone exhibits plenty of licorice, fruitcake, mineral, kirsch, and black fruit characteristics. Medium-bodied and elegant with a touch of austerity at the finish, it should be consumed over the next 10 years.

Score: 90 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate Maturity: 2009-2019 Date: Monday 01 June 2009

Deep and smudgy at the edge. Easy and soft, but absolutely correct mature St Emilion.
