    Wine Advocate Notes
    95+ Points, Robert M. Parker Jr., Wine Advocate: "Its bigger sibling, the 2011 Ausone increases the level of intensity, elegance, complexity, richness and length. Nearly a mirror image of the La Chapelle, just with more going on, the Ausone boasts a more saturated purple color, and the wine has everything in large, intense proportions. The finesse and delicacy of all its components are what make it such a remarkable wine. The quality of the tannins and purity of the fruit make this another legendary effort that should age for 30-40 years." 4/14
    Neil Martin Notes
    92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous Media: "The 2011 Ausone mirrored my sentiments from barrel. It feels lush and generous on the nose, practically ignoring the modest growing season, with raspberry and blueberry fruit, crushed violet and hints of cracked black pepper. It seems to ratchet up through the gears with continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin cloaked in layers of plush black fruit. It feels composed and focused although it does not quite deliver the persistence of the 2012. Of course, this is still very young but I suspect that it will not be the longest lived of recent vintages, preferring to give drinking pleasure over the next 12 to 15 years before leveling off. Tasted at a private dinner in Bordeaux." 3/18
    James Suckling Notes
    "This is extremely open and aromatic, with exotic fruit...This is very persistent and long. A top wine for the vintage. Muscular and toned...96." JS 2/14.
