Chateau Ausone, Saint-Emilion MAGNUM

This Bordeaux Blue Chip will bolster any serious collector's collection, especially in magnum format. With nearly 20 years of beauty sleep, this bottling is poised for immediate enjoyment with a 60-minute decant or cellar it away for another decade. 

Along with Château Cheval-Blanc, Ausone is at the pinnacle of St-Émilion’s quality hierarchy and is regularly included with the Left Bank’s five “First Growths” in most experts’ rankings of the very best wines in all of Bordeaux. Further, with just seven hectares of vines on the limestone plateau of St-Émilion, Ausone is considerably smaller than most of the Bordeaux élite—a jewel-box property of similar scale to the boutique Le Pin in neighboring Pomerol.

France

Bourgogne

Beaujolais

Enjoying the greatest wines of Beaujolais starts, as it usually does, with the lay of the land. In Beaujolais, 10 localities have been given their own AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin) designation. They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France

Bordeaux

Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France

Alsace

Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
