Lot #70. Ausone 2000

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 100 RP.
"Proprietor Alain Vauthier has produced a prodigious wine that captures the essence of Ausone's terroir. A saturated black/purple color is followed by sensational aromas of ink, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and that wet stones/liquid minerality characteristic. The wine has phenomenal presence on the palate as well as astonishing richness and purity. Despite its extract, power, and richness, it is remarkably light, with a surreal delicacy. It is a tour de force in winemaking and a compelling expression of this magical terroir. It should prove to be legendary, but sadly, anyone over the age of 50 will probably not live to see it come close to maturity. " Wine Advocate #146, Apr 2003
Provenance: The Renard Cellar
Estimate: $5,000
