This world famous property is superbly situated on the limestone hillsides of the village of Saint Emilion and consistently produces benchmark examples of the appellation that age effortlessly for 50-100 years. Planted to 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc, the extremely old vines of the estate average 50+ years, and produce very low yields giving Ausone amazing concentration and elements of terroir. Ausone is named after the Roman poet Ausonius, who lived from A.D. 320-395, and was known to have a vineyard in Bordeaux. Ausone is made in such limited quantities that it is difficult to find commercially, but we make every effort to obtain the wine in every vintage. Robert Parker declares: 'Ausone is living up to its mythical status!'

While there is certainly plenty of wood here, the wine has weight and impressive concentration for the year. The tannins are still brooding away, giving a dark firm character to the wine. Blackberry fruits and acidity are there, but still well buried in the tannins.

The 2007 Ausone is a candidate for one of the wines of the vintage, rivaling Pavie and Lafite Rothschild. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a beautiful nose of spring flowers, raspberries, black currants, and crushed rocks. The wine is dense, medium to full-bodied, and pure with sweet tannin as well as a surprisingly evolved, forward style. It is one of the few Ausones I have tasted that can be drunk with great pleasure at this stage, yet it promises to evolve for two decades.

Berry and milk chocolate aromas, with hints of flowers, follow through to a medium-to-full body, with very silky tannins and a delicious, fruity finish. Subtle and pretty, balanced and gorgeous. So refined and caressing. Best after 2013.
