Chapelle d'Ausone (2020)

New

The 2020 Chapelle d’Ausone has a well-defined, focused bouquet. Tightly wound at first, the 2020 opens with lavender and incense aromas infusing the red berry fruit. Touches of rose petal emerge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannins and moderate depth. A discrete white pepper note builds towards the finish that is vivacious and vibrant. Great potential.

    Chateau Ausone is named after Decimus Magnus Ausonius, professor and political adviser to the Roman Empire who was born in Bordeaux in 309. The origin of this association is still uncertain. From the 1970s, a prolonged conflict between co-owners Dubois-Chalon and Vauthier families prevented the running of Ausone. But in the late 1990s, the property came fully to Alain Vauthier, who now runs the chateau with the help of his daughter Pauline and consultant Michel Rolland. Designated as Premier Grand Cru Classé A in 1959, Ausone is an absolutely unique terroir.
