Tasting Notes:
rated: April 1, 2001 , Robert Parker
"96-98 points: tasted on three separate occasions, this spell-binding 2000 is nearly perfect... Approachable for an infant Ausone, this perfectly balanced effort represents the quintessential model of power, elegance, and harmony. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. This wine is nearly transparent with layers of concentrated black fruits that are authoritatively intense. There is plenty of tannin lurking on the back of the palate. This prodigious Ausone is both large-scaled and delicate. Most Ausones require 15-20 years of cellaring (some fans say 40-50) but I, optimistically, feel it will be accessibly by 2010. It is a candidate for 50-60 years of aging." Best 2010-2050

97 points "Best wine I have ever had from this estate. This is like a perfectly cut piece of silk fabric. Every angle is just right, every texture great. Fabulous aromas of tobacco, mineral and cool berry fruit. Full-bodied, with loads of silky tannins and a length that goes on and on. Very racy. Very sexy. Best after 2010." Best 2010-
