Robert Parker notes: The 2000 is the greatest Ausone I have ever tasted, aside from 100+-year-old examples I tasted in Munich with the famous collector, Hardy Rodenstock. A saturated black/purple color is followed by sensational aromas of ink, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and that wet stones/liquid minerality characteristics. 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 and purity. It is a tour de force, in winemaking and a great 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. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2075. P.S.: Even if you have to drink it young, everyone owes it to themselves to taste this prodigious effort. 100pts.
