...This wine displays wonderful, sweet tannin and a big, sweet kiss of truffle, crushed rock, blueberry, blackberry, and licorice. Extremely rich, full-bodied, with astonishing power, precision, and delicacy, this is a sumptuous wine that should age well for 50-60 years... Robert Parker

Where to begin? The Château Ausone 2000 recalls some of my top red Burgundy's—wines of this caliber have an otherworldly quality, that can only be described as an ethereal, gossamer, and transcendent. Complex, evolving layers of black currants, ripe blueberries, gravelly earth, iron, olives, sweet tobacco, violets, camphor, and even a touch of dried honey. It's as multidimensional on the palate, like some living thing with a precise, delineated core, and intersecting mineral tones wound around fine tannins.

Corked bottle. Blew off a bit but not in peak form.
