Château Ausone 2016 - 1St Cru Class A
The Vauthier family has been watching over the vineyard since 1690, with an unchanged passion for the land. Here, everyone is busy in the cellars. Alain and his eldest daughter Pauline, the eleventh generation of winegrowers, make wine today, faithful to the spirit of their forefathers.
Two millennia of culture do not lie: on the Ausone estate, nature concentrates its gifts to work on the wine. For here, gentleness reigns, like an invitation to the vine.
The flagship of the estate, Château Ausone is a work of finesse and elegance. A cathedral-like structure, it begins with a powerful, mineral profile of Cabernet Franc, followed by a round, chiseled, pure Merlot fruit. A monumental wine, like a bulwark against time: on it the years pass and lovingly sublimate its character.
