Château Ausone is the jewel of the estate, a masterpiece of subtle elegance. Like a cathedral, it initially presents a big, powerful, mineral profile of Cabernet franc. The wines rarely stick to any one strict regimen. Methods inspired by both organic and biodynamic procedures are implemented, which are above all the gentlest ways to craft wines. In fact, in this legendary vineyard, the best tactic that Man can adopt is discretion. From the vineyard through to the cellars, all the deliberate, measured practices employed pursue a single ambition, that of enabling the terroir to express itself as genuinely as possible

Winemaker Notes

Alain Vauthier

Château Ausone

by Alain Vauthier
Due to their limestone terroir, the wines possess an incredible minerality, purity of fruit, and concentration. They are rich and full-bodied without being heavy. A bottle of Château Ausone demands time in the cellar – typically 15 to 20 years of bottle ageing. Interesting fact: Château Ausone was one of the few producers to refrain from dispatching barrel samples of the 2019 and 2020 vintages to wine critics around the world via courier during the COVID-19 Pandemic
