From the Critics:

  • This is a presale offer! Full payment is required on all presales. To order by the bottle, call our order department at 888-980-WINE. To order by the case, simply order online! Wine is due in Spring/Summer of 2008.

    "I`m not going out on a limb saying the 2005 Ausone is better than the 2003, 2000, etc., but it is certainly at the same level. It is a wine of great intensity with extraordinary extract as well as a seamless integration of huge levels of tannin and alcohol. Amazingly deep and multilayered, but so ethereal it must be tasted to be believed, it is a rich, full-throttle offering that should outlive us all. It should not be consumed before 2020, but I suspect 95% of it will be long gone by then. Kudos to Alain Vauthier for pushing the envelope as far as anyone in Bordeaux is doing today. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2100!" - 96-100 Points - Robert Parker

    "Loads of blackberry, spice and toasted oak character. Full-bodied, with layers of velvety tannins and amazing fruit. Long and seductive. Layered. This could be even better than the 2003 and 2000. Fantastic. - J.S." 95-100 Points - Wine Spectator - 96-100 Pts Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
