1993 Château Ausone
First Grand Cru Classé A
St Emilion, Bordeaux
Rated 16/20 by the « Revue des Vins de France »
Robert Parker comments :
(…) »The understated style of the 1993 Ausone offers mineral, lead pencil scents with some redcurrant fruit in the restrained, backward bouquet. Austere and medium-bodied, this tannic, attenuated, lean wine will undoubtedly dry out long before the tannin melts away. » (02/1997)
