Tasting Note:

There will be just 5500 bottles of the Chapelle d'Ausone 2017 produced from a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fermentation and maceration takes place in thermoregulated wooden vats before aging in new oak barrels for about 20 months. The father and daughter team of Alain and Pauline Vauthier make wonderfully ethereal wines from the exceptional limestone slopes below Chateau Ausone. The 2017 Chapelle proved a little divisive. I thought it was exquisite, a tremendously vivid and vital example brimming with bright Morello cherry, pure raspberry, fruits of the forest, Kirsch and stony minerality with mouth-watering acidity and effortless tannins teaming with salinity and cranberry.
