"Tasted at Chateau Ausone. Alain Vauthier’s “entry-level” Saint Emilion had a “curled up” nose of raspberry coulis, spice, sweet ‘n sour and plum. The palate has a slightly brusque entry with chalky tannins, but it calms down towards its more elegant finish."
" This highly-focused wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to a beautiful bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, camphor, spring flowers, and spice box. With superb concentration, a hint of minerals, and a lovely textured mouthfeel.." Robert Parker - Rating (94)

"Beautiful aromas of ripe blackberry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Layered and delicious. Gorgeous."
"In the mouth, it is the most refined Valandraud that I have tasted. Very supple in mid-mouth, strong, it keeps a good freshness. Very great finish with fine grain, the finest ever seen on this estate, the most aromatic, too. It is a delight while maintaining very good quality. A must." Jean-Marc Quarin - Rating (95)
