Ausone 2005 (6x75cl)

Only available VAT & Duty Paid

The tiny 7ha vineyard of Ausone is 65% Cabernet Franc and 35% Merlot and is located at the southern edge of Saint-Émilion. Ausone has some of the oldest vines in Saint-Émilion with some Cabernet Franc vines that are more than 100 years of age (planted 1906). It was (until the recent decision to withdraw themselves from the system) one of four 1er Grand Cru Classé (A) properties of St. Émilion alongside Pavie, Angélus and Cheval-Blanc.


2005 was a particularly extraordinary vintage for Ausone. The very first year in which Pauline Vauthier took full control of winemaking decisions, both wines from the property are as stunning a debut as any vigneron on the planet has had. 2005 is, in general, an excellent vintage in Bordeaux, famed for its purity, freshness and fruit underpinned by muscular yet fine tannins. A vintage that required time in bottle, it is finally rewarding collectors ten times over for their patience.


Awarded a remarkable triple 100-point score from three of the world’s leading critical publications, there is little doubt that Ausone 2005 is a legendary wine which deserves a place in the very finest collections out there.
