Maitre-sommelier Janine Kinderman carefully decanted the Ausone 2005 at the 2 star restaurant Samhoudplaces in Amsterdam. Robert Parker called it the perfect wine of the vintage, so we are very curious. ##
The deep color purple with hints of ruby, the nose is full of earth, stones, black fruits, herbs which are slowly released in the glass. This rich full-bodied wine is totally in balance, earth flavours with soft tannins, expressions of wood; WOW! it all comes together.
We sit back to enjoy this great wine with a spectacular venison dish created by Chef Moshik while watching the world go by in Amsterdam.
This rare wine will developed beautifully over the coming decades and it would be great to drink again after 2025. BOW: 10
