The 1966 Ausone is a disappointing wine in the context of one of the best vintages of that decade. Smudged on the nose with pencil shaving and singed leather scents, it develops caramel aromas with time and then skulks off within four or five minutes. The palate is medium-bodied with soy-tinged black fruit, some VA issues and a short, rather astringent finish. Any bottles should be drunk in the near future. Tasted at the Ausone vertical in London.
