Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 14,0 %
This cru has a very small vineyard of 3,5ha with cellars made of the lime rock of St. Emilion. It belongs to the Vauthier family (Ch. Ausone) since 2014. The cru has a beautiful piece of terroir at its dispose which consists of mainly clay-lime and is situated next to Ch. Pavie Macquin and the centre of St. Emilion. The yields are kept very low (30hl/ha) and the maturation is made on 85% new oak barrels, the same way as Ch. Ausone. The only disadvantage is that only 1000 cases are made per year. Mind the new label on the bottle since 2017.
