Ausone

Premier Grand Cru Classé A (First Growth - Classed A) of Saint Emilion

The wines of Chateau Ausone 

Until 1996, the Vauthier family shared the vineyard as a partner with the Dubois-Chalon family. However, the Vauthier are now the sole owners of Chateau Ausone since the full redemption of the Dubois-Chalons' shares. Chateau Ausone is located 35km East of Bordeaux on the right bank of the Dordogne river. It is among the four First Growth - A (premiers grands crus classés A) of Saint Emilion. The vineyard covers 7 hectares and has a terroir of clay and sand on a limestone base. The vines are managed according to the principles of biodynamic cultivation (although Ausone is not officially certified), and the vineyard is made up of 2 red grape varieties: 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot.

Thanks to its impeccable vineyard located mid-slope and ideally exposed, and by its atypical composition particularly highlighting the Cabernet Franc grape variety, Chateau Ausone is distinguished from other wines from St Emilion. The estate produces 2 red wines. The first great Ausone wine is the archetype of the greatest St Emilion. Both powerful and very aromatic, deep and velvety with its crisp freshness, this exceptional wine is exquisite, particularly in hot years. Sometimes austere in its first years, it gradually opens and exudes its interminable finish after 10 to 15 years in the bottle, if it has been cellared in good conditions. In its best vintages (which are the following: 20152014201020092008200520032001200019981995199019831982 and 1976), the great red wine of Chateau Ausone is internationally acclaimed by critics thanks to amazing tasting marks that it got, like in 2005, 2003, and 2000 when it got the perfect mark of 100/100 from Robert Parker. The aging capacity of this great wine is exceptional and seems to be between 20 and 40 years, and more, since the 1990s. The second wine of the chateau is named "Chapelle d’Ausone" (which makes up more than a third of the whole production) is made out of the young vines of the vineyard, and is mainly made of merlot, which develops its roundness. Its ageing capacity is also lesser (but still 8 to 15 years), but the good part is that you'll be able to enjoy it earlier than the other one.
