Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé A.

- +

The 2013 vintage can be described as a challenge in Bordeaux due to its capricious climatology, marked mainly by rainfall. Despite very favorable weather conditions during the summer, a very strict sorting was carried out during the harvest. The harvest was consequently low in quantity, and as a result the 2013 Château Ausone is of great precision and freshness. One of the best successes of the vintage.

The dress presents a pretty dark red color, intense and with slightly tiled reflections.

It opens with a beautiful nose of red and black fruits, violets and spices, before drawing on truffles and subtle notes of roasting.

Its entry in mouth is silky, and it reveals very quickly aromatic richness with jammy black fruits and dark chocolate notes. It develops with great density and freshness, thanks to very fine tannins. The finish is long and particularly pleasant. An incomparable success.

Food and wine pairing:

Château Ausone 2013 should accompany a gastronomic menu or, failing that, high quality dishes. It can accompany a salmis of pigeon as a starter, a roast goose or a tournedos with a truffle sauce as a main course, and a pear charlotte or an opera for dessert. A dish such as calf's liver or rabbit with mushrooms can be a good match.

As for cheeses, prefer Brie de Meaux and Melun, but also Salers.

Ageingpotential and tasting:

This wine will probably reach its qualitative peak between 2023 and 2030, and successive tastings should be carried out to measure its evolution as well as its qualitative peak.

To be served at room temperature, taking care, if possible, to open the bottle and decant it 5 to 6 hours before tasting.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar protected from light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.

One of the 4 most prestigious vineyards in Saint-Emilion: Angelus, Ausone, Cheval Blanc and Pavie, all four classified Premiers Grands Crus A,

The Domaine owes its name to Ausone, a famous poet, professor and political advisor of the Lower Roman Empire, born in Bordeaux (called Burdigala at the time) in the year 309 after Jesus Christ.

Located on the edge of the ramparts of the famous city of Saint-Emilion, the Ausone vineyard extends over 7 hectares and on clay-limestone soil on limestone with asterias

Only three generations have succeeded in this mythical place since the Middle Ages, the third generation working since 1690.

Grape variety: Cabernet Franc 55% and Merlot 45%

The average age of the vineyard is 50 years.

The yield per hectare is very low, around 4,000 bottles with a total annual production of 20 to 22,000 bottles.

All the harvest is manual and the wines are aged in new barrels for the whole in the very old cellars of the Château, as already in the 18th century, carved in very limestone white stone like the soils of the vineyard.
