"Tasted at Chateau Ausone. Alain Vauthier’s “entry-level” Saint Emilion had a “curled up” nose of raspberry coulis, spice, sweet ‘n sour and plum. The palate has a slightly brusque entry with chalky tannins, but it calms down towards its more elegant finish."
Tasted at Chateau Ausone. Alain Vauthier’s “entry-level” Saint Emilion had a “curled up” nose of raspberry coulis, spice, sweet ‘n sour and plum. The palate has a slightly brusque entry with chalky tannins, but it calms down towards its more elegant finish.
Intense aromas of blueberries and raspberries, with hints of citrus. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a fruity finish. Refined and firm.
Ripe plums, blackberries. A juicy delicious wine that is classy with its restraint and elegance because it doesn't try too hard. The tannins are silky and smooth balanced by flavours of plums and cedar.
Pretty Cabernet Franc aromas of crushed berries and some milk chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins. Long sweet fruit on the finish.

This consistently successful and solid Saint-Emilion is situated just below Chateau Ausone and Moulin St Georges and belongs to the same owner, the Vauthier family. It benefits from the expertise of the Ausone's winemaking team and represents quite simply some of the best-value St Emilion available today.
