The 2010 Chapelle Ausone is a very elegant wine with rather tart acids, this second wine of Ausone is medium-bodied, has dark raspberry and blueberry fruit notes with some hints of wet stones. Pure, nicely textured, but rather backward, this wine needs further bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030. One of the other perfectionist, compulsive producers in St.-Emilion is Alain Vauthier, who is now capably assisted by his daughter. Wine Advocate February 2013

A blend of 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, this has a ripe, well defined nose of raspberry, dark plum and a touch of cedar wood. There is very fine lift here. The palate is very smooth and silky on the entry, gentle but insistent grip with structured, tannic, slightly gritty but very focused entry. Very pure…as usual. Drink 2013-2020+ Tasted March 2011.

The second wine of Ausone again doesn’t taste like a second wine! It’s too good!! Dense and exciting, with blackberry, blueberry and currants. Full and powerful. It takes off at the end. The precision and pinpointed dark fruit character is fantastic. jamessuckling.com

Focused and taut, with racy linzer torte and spice notes backed by dark licorice. There's lots of kirsch on the back end, and this is firm, but not overly so. James Molseworth, winespectator.com

65% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very dark purple. Very sweet and rich and punchy. Just a bit green and sinewy on the end. Not quite a complete wine. The less successful grapes went into this I assume? jancisrobinson.com

A notch superior to the '09 in terms of length and structure. 10% Cabernet Sauvignon for the first time. Lifted, smoky, red fruit nose. Dense, layered fruit with minerally freshness. Firm, ripe tannins. Stunning for a second wine. Drink 2020-2035. James Lawther, decanter.com

Made with 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. About as dense as the first wine in colour and body, it allows elderflower and honeysuckle scents to escape. But the tannins and acids give freer access to subtle flavours of soft fruits, vanilla and faint notes of herbs and spices. Cinnamon, fennel, thyme, tobacco smoke and minerals together suggest very exciting results in 15 or 20 years.

Smoke, cassis, stone and fresh blackberry aromas pair with a medium full bodied, sweet, round, tannic, blackberry and chocolate finish. winecellarinsider.com

The 2010 Chapelle d'Ausone offers notes of roasted herbs, spices, plums, and blackberries, and amazing flavours that just dance on the palate. Lacking any heaviness, the wine is generous on the palate, with flavours of great intensity and length. Composed of mostly Merlot, this Chapelle d'Ausone is longer and has longer aging potential than the 2009.asianpalate.com
