Description/ Tasting Notes

Fabulous aromas of currants, rose petals, dried strawberries and hints of lemon rind. Wet earth and chalk. There is an almost sorbet-like freshness conferred upon this Saint Emilion by the growing season, very harmonious and poised with one of the most precise and tensile finishes.

Winery Info/ Brand



Alain Vauthier has made massive improvements at Ausone in the past few years since taking full control of the winemaking and management of his family's property. As a result, Ausone has returned to top First Growth form and vies with Pétrus and Cheval Blanc as the right bank's top château.
With production levels even less than those of Pétrus, Ausone has become one of the most demanded and hard-to-find wines of Bordeaux.

Region Info/ Origin



Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
