Château d'Aussieres 2015
Château d’Aussières is the “cuvée d’excellence”, the product of a strict selection from the best plots in the vineyard, made in limited quantities. 40% is aged in oak barrels for 12 to 16 months. The wines express all the richness and elegance of the late-ripening, cool terroir.
Colour: Dark colour with glints of violet.
Nose: It is deep and elegant, but still quite closed. The effect of the barrel-ageing is not yet fully integrated, but the delicate woody notes are already blending with aromas of pine and eucalyptus.
Palate: It is powerful with notes of cherry and chocolate. The significant proportion of Mourvèdre gives the wine good length and perfectly complements the finesse of the Syrah and the lighter notes of the Grenache. The finish is well-balanced and elegant. Having benefited from almost perfect conditions during the growth cycle, this vintage, despite its relative youth, is very pleasant to drink now, and will no doubt keep its freshness for some years to come.
