WS 96
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2007
Flower and berry character with hints of clove and black pepper. Full-bodied and very rich with decadent flavors. Oozes with ripe fruit. Goes on and on. Fabulous.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. –JS

It is the first year where after more than a decade of infighting among the owners Alain Vauthier emerged as the sole proprietor and thus had complete control of the wine's viticulture vinification and up-bringing. Ausone's extraordinary minerality is present in the 1995 yet there are more aromatics a richer more multidimensional palate impression and a fuller texture - all with the terroir brilliantly expressed. The wine boasts a dense ruby/purple color and an emerging but tightly-knit nose of spring flowers minerals earth and black fruits. Rich with an opulent texture and surprising sexiness for a young vintage of Ausone the medium-bodied 1995 displays exquisite balance between its acid tannin alcohol and fruit. Although it is not yet seamless all the elements are present for an extraordinary evolution in the bottle. Given its backward style this wine will require 5-7 years of cellaring and will age at a glacial pace for 30-40 years. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2045.
