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. Drink 2016-2066

This makes you sit up and pay attention, with a stunning array of loam, Turkish coffee, roasted cedar and licorice root flavours coursing along the bottom half, while sleek plum, blackberry and anise notes drive over the top. The mouthwatering finish is loaded with dark fruit, all harnessed by iron-clad grip. Best from 2014 through 2024. -J.M

Dunkles Rubingranat, jugendliche Reflexe, violetter Rand. In der Nase rauchig-würzig, intensive kräuteraromen, mineralischer Anklang, noch wenig entwickeltes Bukett. Am Gaumen eher rotbeerig, feine Röstaromen, mineralisch, insgesamt etwas schlanker als in sehr guten Jahren, jedoch sehr harmonisch und finessenreich angelegt, hat gutes Reifepotenzial.

(90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc; 27 hl/ha; 100% new oak) Inky-purple color. Brooding, complex aromas of blueberry juice, air-dried plum and balsamic vinegar, with a touch of dusty minerality. Sweet and massive on entry, this conveys a serious sense of huge power but also impeccable balance to its black fruit and sweet spice flavors. Finishes clean and impressively long, with ultra-silky tannins that coat the gums and won't let go.

55 % Cabernet Franc, 45 % Merlot. Süsses, kompaktes Bouquet, viel Amarena und Waldbeeren, mit feinen Gewürzen, frischen Noten von Orangeat und Zitronenmelisse, noblen Hölzern und Karamellnuancen. Harmonischer Gaumen, extrem konzentrierte blaue bis schwarze Beerenfrucht, eine wahre Essenz, enorm viel Druck aufbauend, minutenlanger Nachklang. Gehört zu den ganz grossen Ausone-Jahrgängen und erinnert stark an den genialen 1998er. Unsterblicher Klassiker, fast schon monumental. 2018 – 2050

The 2008 Ausone tasted much more forward and softer than most Ausones do at this stage, which is remarkable considering the extremely late harvest and slow, late malolactics. Nevertheless, it is a packed and stacked St.-Emilion displaying an inky/blue/purple color, unreal fruit density, and that liquid mineral component that comes from this steep, limestone vineyard. The wine possesses dense fruit, full-bodied power, remarkably sweet tannins, and more elevated acidity than in such years as 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2006. The acidity seems low because of the wealth and density of the fruit. Everything is incredibly pure, and the cascade of blue and black fruits interwoven with notions of crushed rocks, flowers, and forest floor is as provocative as it is grand. I can conceive of drinking this Ausone with some degree of complexity in less than ten years, which may be considered sacre bleu by the proprietor since many of his wines will last 50-100 years where well-stored. Yields were a ridiculously low 20 hectoliters per hectare, and the grapes were harvested in mid to late October.

Once again, Alain Vauthier has produced a wine that flirts with perfection. As I stated in my bottled 2006 Bordeaux report, over the last decade no proprietor has produced as many virtually perfect wines as Vauthier.

Alain Vauthier passe en douceur la main à sa fille aux commandes du cru désormais le plus recherché de Saint-Emilion. En 2008, les vendanges se sont déroulées vers le 15 octobre, les nuits fraîches ayant permis, selon Alain Vautheier, de faire mûrir doucement les raisins, tout en conservant la fraîcheur. Le vin est riche, avec des indices de tanins élevés. De fait, à la dégustation, il est d'une grande ampleur, mais avec ce cachet inimitable qui lui permet de combiner fraîcheur, puissance et soyeux. Fermé, on perçoit une énergie sous-jacente parfaitement soutenue par la trame minérale, la longueur est interminable et les tanins sont d'un très grand raffinement. Une fois encore, une réussite totale.

De la soie : un grain de tanin sans équivalent dans le monde ! Profondeur, intensité, fraîcheur, perfection formelle et fond impressionnant.

A blend of 45% Merlot and 55% Cabernet Franc, the Ausone is muted on the nose at first – it really needs time to unfurl and when it does, there are wonderful pure blackberries, cassis, damson and loganberries. It has spellbinding definition – razor-sharp. The palate has cashmere tannins, sensuous texture and ethereal harmony. Does not just caress the mouth, but leaves it utterly in love and hoping for marriage. A brilliant wine from Alain Vauthier this year, but we have come to expect nothing less. Tasted April 2009.

Couleur noire. Nez fin, fruité, frais, mûr et plus fin que la couleur sombre ne le laisserait croire. La présence de 55% de cabernet franc est sans doute pour quelque chose dans cet aspect très parfumé. Du reste, Alain Vauthier confirme que chaque année des petits détails changent dans son cru. La proportion de cabernet franc a tendance à progresser. Il anticipe une proportion encore plus forte dans les années futures lorsque les vignes auront pris de l'âge. Très belle entrée en bouche, pulpeuse, veloutée et le vin se développe de suite aromatique, voire même très aromatique sur des tannins fondants et juteux. Il présente beaucoup de goût et une grande qualité de texture. Très belle finale, toujours fondante, présente mais aussi aérienne, avec une permanence de la saveur et du velouté. C'est délicieux, très précis pour le illésime et pas du tout austère. Il y a quelque chose du grand 2002 dans cette présentation.

55% Cabernet Franc (picked 20 Oct), 45% Merlot (picked 17 and 18 Oct). Deliberately not picked for over-ripeness. 27 hl/ha. 16,000 bottles Polished blackish purple. Wonderfully exotic and ripe on the nose – very nervy and exciting, Really caresses the palate. Lovely sensuality with lots of acidity and tension but fully ripe black fruit flavours. So clean and brilliant! So finely etched. Still very dry on the end but not excessively so. Great punch and energy. Definitely like an electric shock. Drink 2018-35

Continues the run of great vintages since 1996. Fine, fragrant nose with superb purity of fruit. Seamless on the palate with vigour and finesse. Plenty of lift and freshness on the finish. Dense and profound. Drink 2018-2035.

Floral and perfumed, with blackberry and black cherry aromas. Minerally and pretty. So Burgundian on the nose. Full and supersilky, with a solid core of beautiful fruit. A wonderfully textured wine, with great length. Impressive for the vintage.
