98 Points - Robert Parker - "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"
96 Points - Neal Martin - "The 2008 Ausone has a really show-stopping bouquet, to wit, one of the most seductive you will find in 2008: pure red cherries, crushed strawberry and vanilla pod scents, later rose petal and an almost honeyed aroma. The palate is medium-bodied with sensual, ripe tannin that feel lavish, luxuriant. The richness is neatly countered by a fine seam of acidity. There are vines of orange zest and allspice towards the finish that fans out with brio and confidence. This is an Ausone determined to make an impression – and it does with some panache. Chapeau Pauline et Alain! 2020 - 2050"
