Chateau Ausone 2017 (1 btl-OWC)

IN. Excellent appearance.
This lot comes from a private collector who bought through en-primeur. The wine has been in commercial storage since arrival. The wine comes in original OWC with security seal and tag. The bottle image is for illustration only and not the actual bottle inside the unopened box.
"The 2017 Ausone is without question one of the wines of the vintage. Stunning in its grandeur and presence, the 2017 possesses marvelous depth and remarkable aromatic intensity from the very first taste. Dark red and blue stone fruit, licorice, menthol, lavender and sweet spice build into the rich, flamboyant finish. The 2017 is 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot with the Franc very expressive today. The fruit saw about 30 days on the skins, including a week of cold soak. But those are mere details. The 2017 Ausone is a total stunner. That's all there is to it." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (98 points)
