About Chateau Ausone

Once owned by the Roman poet and vintner, Ausonius, this St. Emilion First Growth is now managed by Alain Vauthier. Along with the limestone hillside where the old vines reside, Vauthier is largely responsible for Ausone's success. He acquired the estate after years of inter-family legal battles and has poured his heart and soul into the property.

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008

Good deep red. Musky redcurrant, coffee and game on the nose, complicated by smoky oak and minerals. Supple on entry, then a bit closed in the middle palate, offering hints of graphite and flowers. Finishes broad, sweet and aromatic, with uncanny persistence for a second wine. (Vauthier declined to show his 2006s, which were being fined.)
