Château Ausone

Château Ausone is arguably one of the most famous producers in Bordeaux despite its small size. In the mid-nineties the property was taken over by the Vauthier family, with Alain Vauthier taking over as managing director.  Michelle Rolland has been consultant oenologist since 1995 and the proof of this fantastic team’s efforts is shown in the tasting.  Since the late 1990s, this renowned château has consistently produced fabulous wines. Robert Parker scored both the 2003 and 2005 vintages perfect scores of 100 Points and many other vintages since have been awarded 98 or 98+ points.  Château Ausone makes a second wine, Chapelle d'Ausone which also score highly from Parker who says  ‘The fact that this second wine is so remarkable tells readers just how stupendous the grand vin must be.’

Alain, his daughter Pauline and brilliant winemaker Phillipe Baillarguest are putting as much effort into producing the best Château Moulin Saint-Georges as they are with Château Ausone itself. Moulin Saint-Georges is produced in the same way; super-strict fruit selection and the wine is matured in 100% new French barriques from anywhere between 18 to 20 months. This is a truly fabulous property and Château Moulin Saint-Georges is just as world-class in our opinion...
