Château Ausone

Nearby, Château Ausone are the remains of a large Roman villa. This may have been the home of the Bordeaux-born Roman poet Ausonius, who also owned vineyards here.

Famous is the cathedral-like wine cellar carved into the rock. The estate was owned by the Vauthier and Dubois-Challon families for 250 years. After a long dispute, Alain Vauthier bought the shares and 1996 and is now the sole owner.

In 1997 Alain Vauthier engaged the well-known French oenologist Michel Rolland as consultant. He is now responsible for the vinification himself.
