Château Ausone

chateau ausone

Château Ausone is the smallest of Bordeaux's 'big eight' (first growths), perched on the limestone hillsides that harbour the walled town of Saint-Émilion, and production is tiny.

Ausone has been under the inspirational Alain Vauthier since 1995, who has spared no expense in establishing benchmark Saint-Émilion that often age for 50-100 years. The château site shows evidence of the roman activity, which gives the wine its name, commemorating the 4th Century poet Ausonius.
