Reddish towards brown colour. Fantastic berry aromas. It is a fleshy wine from Château Ausone.
The Château Ausone should be enjoyed after the meal.
Wine and friends always pairs very well.

Château Ausone 2012

Cherry red colour. Delicious aromas of licorice and mint. This Saint-Émilion Grand Cru has a very good acidity.
A red for any occassion.
The best of Château Ausone for drinking in good company.

Toffee smell, followed by coffee smell. It has a good entry.
This wine is rather watery for my taste.

In a restaurant.
Subtle taste. Its aromas reminded me of white rose petals. If you like acidic wines, this one might be right for you. I loved its acidity.

A good smell of flowers, mostly purple colour. I liked the Château Ausone, but it tasted a bit rough.
This 2014 has a phenomenal QPR.
