  • 97-99/100 Note: 97-99/100 | Classement: Premier Grand Cru Classé A
The nose is a little closed, with mineral and spicy notes. Very good entry in the mouth, firm, precise. Superb density. A lot of energy in this wine. The structure is superbly articulated: the tannins are spicy, dense, without rigidity. Great length. At this stage, it seems a bit backward but the potential is there.

Viticulture

Alain Vauthier has been present at Ausone since 1974 and became the sole owner in 1997. The vineyard faces east-south-east. The parcels are located on two geological entities: 1/4 of their surface is on asteriated limestone and 3/4 on the Fronsadais molasses. The average age of the vines is 50 years. The density of the latest plantations is 12,600 vines/ha. The vineyard is managed according to the principles of Biodynamics. 2nd wine: Chapelle d'Ausone.

Oenology

After de-stemming, the grapes are placed in 6 hl vats refrigerated at 6O for 5 to 6 days, then in 54 hl wooden vats. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out using indigenous yeasts. Extraction is done by light pumping over, 2 to 3 délestages and sometimes 1 or 2 pigeages. The wine is then placed in new barrels. Once the malolactic process is complete, the barrels are taken down to the ageing cellar where they remain for about twenty months.
