95 points "Collectibles designation: You have to love the beautiful plum, berry and vanilla character in this wine. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Very refined and beautiful. Not the 2000, but classic just the same. Best after 2007." Best 2007-

"94-96 points: Perfectionist proprietor Alain Vauthier seemingly can do no wrong. A candidate for wine of the vintage, and clearly the finest 2002 from Bordeaux's right bank (a vintage that favors the cabernet sauvignon-based wines of the Medoc), the 2002 Ausone boasts an opaque blue/purple color as well as aromas reminiscent of liqueur of crushed rocks interwoven with raspberries, black currants, and licorice. It is extraordinarily pure, precise. Medium to full-bodied, and while possessing huge levels of tannin, they are balanced by equally prodigious levels of concentrated fruit. Although aged in 100% new oak, the wood is not detectable given the amazing concentration and texture of this profound 2002. It is another tour de force in winemaking from one of the most meticulous and conscientious wine producers in Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2060." Best 2013-2060

5 stars "Absolutely brilliant and outstanding, perhaps the most accomplished wine of the vintage. Admirable complex nose, great body, incredible perfection of texture and flavour, inimitable breed, and lovely after-taste. The quality and the tactile elegance of the tannin is in a classof its own. Most other 2005s aseem almost rustic in comparison. Drink from 2017. (20 points)" Best 2017-
