Description

2001 Château Ausone 1er Grand Cru Classe A St-Emilion AOC, Château Ausone

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2001 Ausone has put on even more weight than I anticipated. The ?wine of the vintage,? this inky/purple-colored 2001 boasts a provocative, floral perfume of crushed stones, raspberries, blackberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and smoke. What makes it so sensational are the layers of flavor and nuances that unfold as the wine sits in the glass as well as on the palate. This is an extraordinarily intense effort, but remarkably elegant and well-balanced. It ideally needs another decade of cellaring; it should last for 4-5 decades! Alain Vauthier is a perfectionist, which is evidenced by what he has produced over the last half dozen vintages at Ausone. Kudos to readers lucky enough to find a bottle or two … and live long enough to enjoy them in their prime. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050+.
