About Chateau Ausone:

Only three families have been the owners of the current prestigious estate of Ausone in St Émilion.

The family of today’s descendants running Ausone goes back to 1690 when Pierre Chatonnet (1636-1728) was officially confirmed owner of the estate.

The 7 hectares (17 acres) of Château Ausone are located on Saint Emilion’s limestone plateau, just a few meters from the medieval village.

The soils are clay-limestone. The grape varieties are Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with a majority of Cabernet Franc at 55%.
