    Château Ausone 1986
    Saint-Emilion, 1er grand cru classé
    Repacked from original wooden case. Bin-soiled labels, stained. Levels base of neck or better
    Tasting note: The 1986 displays a deep ruby/garnet colour with light amber at the edge. The nose reveals a concoction of herbaceous cherry and earth-infused fruit with spice and mineral undertones. Still tannic, with the wine's structure and astringency dominating. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Edition (1998)
