Un vin rouge d'Ausone minéral
À la dégustation, le Château Ausone 1990 offre d'abord au nez des arômes d'ambre, de gâteau aux fruits, de roches pilées et d'encens, avant de libérer des fragrances sucrées, fruitées et minérales. Ce vin se bonifie avec le temps, après avoir été un peu fermé par le passé. Il est à consommer dès maintenant.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
After revealing some amber at the edge as well as copious aromas of fruitcake, crushed rocks, incense, and a weedy character, the 1990 Ausone offers up sweet, jammy fruit notes as well as a firm finish with the tell-tale crushed rock minerality that this estate often achieves. The aromatics suggest a fully mature wine, but in the mouth, the firm structure and density indicate this effort needs more time. This wine gives off mixed signals, and I suspect it will last much longer than it appears, but only time will tell. There is a lot to like here, but the 1990 is not one of the most profound Ausones, such as those made since 1998. Owners should try a bottle and make up their own minds, but I think it has another 10- to 15-year window of maximum pleasure.
