Critical Acclaim

"The second wine of Ausone again doesn't taste like a second wine! It's too good!! Dense and exciting, with blackberry, blueberry and currants. Full and powerful. It takes off at the end. The precision and pinpointed dark fruit character is fantastic.
Barrel Sample: 95-96 Points"
96 Points

"This second wine of Château Ausone is powerful, dominated by firmly tannic wood-aged Merlot. The wine also has an intense, juicy fruitiness and hints of spiced wood cake."
94 Points

"Focused and taut, with racy linzer torte and spice notes backed by dark licorice. There's lots of kirsch on the back end, and this is firm, but not overly so.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points"
93 Points

"Good deep red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of blueberry, menthol and flowers. Juicy, concentrated and tactile, with a distinctly penetrating quality to the blueberry, licorice, fresh herb and mineral flavors. A bit lean and wound-up today in an Old World way, this nicely concentrated second wine needs time to soften in the bottle.
Rating: 90(+?)"

Learn 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%.
