Ausone 2010 is a great wine. There is a real balance accuracy and freshness. Nose, one discovers notes of black fruits, such as black cherry. On the palate, the wine is intense and rich. The tannins are tight and we note perfume of ripe fruit at the ends.

One of the prides of Saint-Émilion
Ausone is one of the oldest buildings in Saint-Émilion. The name "Ausone" supposedly comes from a poet who lived in a "Lucaniacum" in the area: Decimus Magnus Ausonius (310-395). Over the centuries, the castle had a few owners. It also changed its name in 1952, to officially become "Casteau Dauzone". Today, the estate belongs to the Vauthier family, direct descendants of Pierre Chatonnet (who was the castle's owner in 1690) and the Dubois-Challon family (the proprietors of Château Bélair).
The vineyards of this Bordeaux Château represent 7 hectares of a beautiful limestone plateau, filled with gravel found in Saint-Émilion. The grape variety distribution of the vineyards is 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot. Ausone is one of the most coveted wines of Bordeaux, because it is very hard to find a single bottle on the market. Nearly 18,000 bottles are produced per vintage.
