2003 AUSONE / 奧松 (PRE-ORDER)

Something about Chateau Ausone

Chateau Ausone is named after Decimus Magnus Ausonius, professor and political adviser to the Roman Empire who was born in Bordeaux in 309. The origin of this association is still uncertain. From the 1970s, a prolonged conflict between co-owners Dubois-Chalon and Vauthier families prevented the running of Ausone. But in the late 1990s, the property came fully to Alain Vauthier, who now runs the chateau with the help of his daughter Pauline and consultant Michel Rolland. Designated as Premier Grand Cru Classé A in 1959, Ausone in an absolutely unique terroir.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

Amazing! The limestone soils of Ausone appear to have been the perfect foil for resisting the extreme heat and drought of June, July and August, 2003. This black/purple-colored effort boasts a glorious nose of violets, truffles, lead pencil shavings, blueberry and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied with staggering concentration, a voluptuous texture, low acidity and well-integrated, melted tannins, this deep, multidimensional, profound Bordeaux is beginning to drink exceptionally well. It should continue to do so for another two decades or more. Drink: 2014 - 2034
