Bordeaux 2020 En Primeur | Ausone Stable

For the savvy buyer, when you blend a high-class vintage such as 2020 with the winemaking skill and heritage that the Vauthier family offers, you have an unmissable opportunity. Today sees the release of three Right Bank stars from the iconic Ausone stable: Chateaux Moulin St Georges, Fonbel and La Clotte. 

Fonbel @ £88/6: Situated below Ausone and Moulin St Georges, this is a charmingly juicy and supple wine that will provide early drinking pleasure at a very reasonable price.

Moulin St Georges @ £138/6: Borders the southern entrance of St Emilion with its vineyards adjoining those of the iconic Chateau Ausone. It is as utterly gorgeous and sumptuous as ever. Beautifully crafted, only ever producing 2,500 cases or less, this is a true star and one that will cellar well.

La Clotte @ £285/6: Sitting proudly on a limestone plateau on top of one of the highest points in Saint Emilion, sited on the eastern side of the appellation. This tiny four hectare vineyard is producing some magical wines with an opulent and luxurious style. Brought into the Vauthier stable in 2014, production is small, around 1,200 cases and the price still remains very sensible.

Alain Vauthier is the 11th generation pushing these great estates forwards and under his guidance the quality has rocketed. In today's Bordeaux, this lineage is rare and the knowledge and understanding of these historic vineyards undeniably contributes to the magic of these spellbinding wines. Be quick to grab yourself a few cases, we don’t expect them to hang around for long.
