Château Ausone is a Right Bank Bordeaux wine from Saint-Émilion appellation, one of only four wines along with Château Angélus, Château Cheval Blanc and Château Pavie to be ranked Premier Grand Cru Classé A in the Classification of Saint-Émilion wine. Chapelle d'Ausone is its second wine.

The success of the wine produced at Ausone is attributed to a combination of exposure and the soil, a mixture of sand and clay on limestone, unique to the district. The vineyard is 7 hectares arranged with the grape varieties of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot. Due to the small scale of the vineyards, picking may be done at any optimal moment, usually in two afternoons. Of both the Grand vin and the second wine Chapelle d'Ausone, the annual production averages only at 2,000 cases!

Tasting Notes

Ruby hue, with purplish reflection in youth. The notes of red fruits are very concentrated, behind them develop a wide range of aromas including vanilla and leather with aging in barrels. The main varieties of the appellation come together and complement each other to magnify the wine as a whole. Merlot brings fruit and Cabernet Franc the spice notes.

Food Pairing

Beef, roast chicken, and pork.
