Chapelle d’Ausone 2022


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 96.0

The younger sibling of Château Ausone, the Chapelle d’Ausone is not one to be overlooked. The distinct personality of Cabernet Franc is matched with Merlot and offset by hints of Cabernet Sauvignon, to develop well rounded flavours of crisp, dark fruit. Plucked from young vines (up to ten years old) and aged in 100% new barrels for 20 months, Chapelle d’Ausone’s youthful process is still grounded in tradition. Manual harvests, combined with Ausone’s chalky limestone terroir contribute to an alchemic blend that sees the wine glide through flavours of rich fruits and piquant minerality.



Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, with a pH of 3.52 and a TPI of 74, the Chapelle d’Ausone 2022 is deep garnet-purple in color. It swans out with showy notions of kirsch, black cherry compote, and black raspberries, followed by wafts of garrigue, violets, and cedar chest. Full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, delivering firm, fine-grained tannins and amazing acidity to support the dense, generous fruit, finishing long and minerally. Impressive!

Jane Anson

An impressive Chapelle that opens with a wave of opulence, rich and confident in its construction. Majors on tobacco, cigar box, liqourice, chocolate, creamy damson, black cherry puree, velvety tannins. Incredible to think that this character can be teased out of pure limestone soils, but their fingerprint, with a welcome edge of salty cracker, comes in on the finish. Takes the character of the vintage and leans right in to it. Highly accomplished. 3.5ph, 100% new oak. Conversion to organic farming since 2020, Philippe Baillarguet cellar master, Pauline Vauthier owner and winemaker.
