  1. 2001 Château Ausone (St. Émilion Grand Cru)

    1. OK, this is still primary, but its impossible not to be seduced by the melted rocks, pure black cherries, licorice and earthy perfume. The wine is intense, concentrated, fresh and pure. The tannins are ripe and silky, ending with a finish that goes on and on and continues from there. OK, you are at least a decade from maturity. But I can safely say, this is going to be stunning when it enters into the mature stage of life.

    2. The level of truffle, crushed stone, floral, boysenberry, gunpowder, smoke and fennel is close to being off the charts. Thick, rich, intense and concentrated with sweet, ripe fruit and lush tannins that are perfected by a finish that continues to linger, this is a stunning St. Emilion and the of wine of the vintage.

    3. Inky black with shiny deep purple accents. The aromatics come out to play with coaxing. Flowers, black and blue fruits, spices and minerals already show themselves. On the palate, your mouth and senses are treated to a focused display few wines show. The riveting palate presence, with layer after layer of some of the sexiest, ripest, most opulent fruit you'll ever taste is out of this world! Very tannic backbone. This will age for decades. But, there is so much fresh, perfectly ripe fruit, it's already easy to discern how good this is, and even better, how amazing it's going to be!

    4. OMFG! Those 4 letters should say it all. This magic Bordeaux elixir is a mind blowing tasting experience! The perfume might get you started with its blend of deep, dark, fruits, minerals and spices, but the endless waves of perfectly ripe fruit, power, glycerin, elegance and balance that lasts close to :90 are going to keep you interested in the wine. Still young, no make that still very young, this is an amazing tasting experience that is a reference point wine. 01 Ausone truly expresses an amazing purity of fruit that is seldom found in any wine.
