One of the great wines of St Emilion and in a vintage that is so clearly dominated by each appellation’s great estates it is no surprise to see Ausone here.

Saved, as has happened before, by its terroir, the estate was largely untouched by frost, losing only the fruit from the vines at sister properties Simard and Haut-Simard.
