Lot #67. Ausone 1966

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 JG.
"This bottle was happily drunk about four months after the above bottle and was treated properly and was absolutely singing. The stunning and classically exotic Ausone bouquet soars from the glass in a blaze of cherry, pomegranate, menthol, a touch of nutskin, summer truffle, cigar wrapper and a brilliantly complex base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and magically complex, with precise focus and balance, a sweet core of red fruit, glorious transparency and a very, very long, tangy and beautifully resolved finish. This wine has just a whisper of tannin remaining, but it is the acids and impeccable balance here that will continue to carry this wine far into the future. A great vintage of Ausone." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2016, Issue #63
Provenance: The Agneau Cellar
Notes: 1 Very top shoulder, 1 top shoulder, wine stained, lightly torn, corroded capsules, 1 nicked, lightly faded, lightly scuffed, lightly bin soiled labels.
