Chateau Ausone kasutuses on ühed parimad Grand Cru põllud. Veinimõis laiub ainult 7-l hektaril, millest 55% on Cabernet Franc ja 45% on Merlot all. Selle veini teeb eriliseks ja eristuvaks teistest pinnas, millel viinapuud kasvavad. Pinnas on segu savist ja lubjakivist nõlvadel, mis asuvad 15-20 % kalde all, mistõttu on igasugune tööde mehhaniseerimine raskendatud.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #218, April 2015) 96+/100 Points
One can’t say enough about the amazing job that Alain Vauthier and his daughter have done at this historic property on the decomposed limestone slopes of St.-Emilion. Not surprisingly, the 2012 Ausone is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage. Inky purple in color, with notes of crushed rocks, spring flowers and blueberry and black raspberry, the wine grows on the palate, offering up amazing concentration. There is no heaviness or cloying characteristics. Pure, rich, full-bodied and, although accessible, it is capable of lasting 30 or more years. This will be one of the profound 2012s, following what Haut Brion and Mission Haut Brion did in Pessac-Léognan. Drink it 2022-2050+
