Chateau Ausone Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 1970

Situated on the right bank of the Bordeaux, the Saint-Emilion Appellation is possibly the oldest active wine producing appellation in the Bordeaux region with a history that dates back to the times of the ancient Romans. Indeed some suggest Chateau Ausone, may be the original Lucaniac villa dating back to the fourth century which  belonged to the famed Roman poet Ausonius. If you go to the lower portion of the Bordeaux wine estate, you can find numerous archaeological remains of an ancient Roman villa. Among the ruins, can be found mosaics that show the estate was known as “La Villa du Palat.” Regardless of where the poet planted his Bordeaux wine vineyards, Ausone has been produced for close to 4 centuries under the name honoring Ausonius.

Chateau Ausone also has some of the oldest vines in St. Emilion with oldest having been planted in 1906. The St. Emilion vineyard of Chateau Ausone is, today, planted to 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot and aproximatly reflects the percentage make up of the wine.
