Description · Château Ausone

2006 Château Ausone (Cabernet Franc and Merlot)

Half ruby ​​red color, very bright. By analyzing the nose, aromas are pure blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, coffee and minerals. Wonderfully dense without being heavy, with Calcarea energy that permeates his black fruit and mineral flavors, the tannins are incredibly sweet and very fine. Your stay in the barrel is just the beginning of its evolution, since the complexity of this wine will be able to take over a long period of time.

AUSONE, poet Roman consul (. 310-394 AD) was the Emperor GRACIANO preceptor and winemaker; their wine was offered at the table of CESARS.
The term "Château" does not begin to be used until after the classification of the wines of the Medoc and Sauternes, ie in the late nineteenth century, AUSONE is an exception. It is the only "Château" before the Second Empire of Saint-Émilion.
The barrel aging is carried out in a splendid cellars, having origins in the late sixteenth century, when the council of Saint-Émilion decided to restore the city walls, removing the stones from the rock above which was the cemetery of the Magdelaine.

Toffee smell, followed by coffee smell. It has a good entry.
This wine is rather watery for my taste.

Chateau Ausone 2015
In a restaurant.
Subtle taste. Its aromas reminded me of white rose petals. If you like acidic wines, this one might be right for you. I loved its acidity.

Château Ausone Chateau Ausone 1Er Gr.Cr.Cl.a 2015
A red which I enjoyed with my friends.
The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. Strong strawberries aromas. Very light, pleasent.
Best paired with other food than the one we ordered.

A good smell of flowers, mostly purple colour. I liked the Château Ausone, but it tasted a bit rough.
This 2014 has a phenomenal QPR.
