Wine Spectator, 98 points: hows stunning depth and drive with a deep well of blackberry and plum sauce and a lush structure. Superlong with spice and anise echoing on. A tremendous young wine in the making. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.
Wine Spectator, 93 points: This has guts for the vintage with good fleshy plum and blackberry fruit melded nicely already with anise and spice cake notes. Shows more weight than length but that should come.-J.M.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 points: One of the best second wines I have ever tasted the 2003 Chapelle d'Ausone is rivaled by the 2003 Carruades de Lafite and 2003 Forts de Latour. Dense ruby/purple to the rim with an extraordinary nose of flowers figs black...

Wine Enthusiast, 96 points: (WE94-96 points) While this wine is rich in fruit, it also has swathes of tannins to offer support. Rich blackberry flavors are shot through with acidity and dark tannins. It is dense and showing some great aging potential.
Wine Enthusiast, 96 points: (WE94-96 points) The second wine of Château Ausone is dominated by both Cabernets, Sauvignon and Franc. It is structured and seriously dense, with plenty of firm tannins as well as delicious acidity. The structured...
Wine Spectator, 93 points: Tight with hints of mesquite and tar showing good racy tobacco leaf and cassis notes. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

JJ Buckley has been my go-to vendor for fine wines for nearly nine years. Their wine reps do an excellent job and I have yet to have a single negative experience when I deal with them.
