About This Producer


Classed as Grand Cru Classe A, the best of the appellation, Chateau Ausone sits on a hill just south of St. Emilion. The chateau is named after the Roman poet Ausonius who owned over 100 acres of vineyard around Saint Emilion. The vineyards grow 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot grapes, producing approximately 2,000 cases a year. The chateau has a long history dating back to medieval times. After struggling during the first part of the twentieth century, the estate has seen a resurgence with the hires of Pascal Delbeck in 1976 and consultant Michel Rolland in recent years. Wines from Chateau Ausone require at least 10 years of bottle age after which they develop exotic flavors such as currant, black cherry and spice. Chateau Ausone also produces a second wine called Chapelle d'Ausone.

Wine Varietal: Merlot


Merlot shares many of the same profile descriptors as Cabernet Sauvignon including plum, blackberry, chocolate and mocha. Bordeaux's Right Bank, such as in Pomerol and St.-Emilion, is the traditional home to this red grape, but it is grown all over the world. Merlot is either bottled on its own or is blended with other red grapes.
