Lot #112. Ausone 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"Possibly the “wine of the vintage,” the 2008 boasts an inky/blue/purple color as well as a glorious perfume of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, camphor, truffles and crushed rocks. With great fruit on the attack and mid-palate, a medium to full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like finish, this prodigious effort over-delivers, even for this phenomenal terroir. Give it 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 40-50 years." Wine Advocate #194, May 2011
Provenance: The Blue Chip Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $700
