1er Grand Cru Classé

2001 Chateau Ausone

This intense, long-lasting, and complex wine is perfect for special occasions or fine dining. It has complex aromas and flavors of blackberries, cassis, and espresso., Saint-Emilion, France.

Chateau Ausone is the jewel of the estate, a masterpiece of subtle elegance. Like a cathedral, it initially presents a big, powerful, mineral profile of Cabernet Franc.

Robert Parker 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+. Reviewed by: Robert M. Parker, Jr. Issue date: June 2004. Drinking window: 2012 - 2050.

Vinous

Rating (93+) Medium ruby. Tarry black fruits and minerals on the nose. Began extremely, tight and austere, with penetrating black fruit and minerals flavours. With aeraton, this showed more flesh and complexity, hinting at blackberry, graphite, expresso and sexy oak. For such a vibrant, juicy, minerally wine, the tannins are extremely fine. This may well merit an even higher score 12 to 15 years down the road. Reviewed by: Stephen Tanzer, Issue date: May 2004. Drinking window: Unavailable.
