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.
