Tasting Notes

Beautiful, deep dark-red colour. The nose is still somewhat reserved, offering aromas of spices and garrigue mingled with toasted notes from the barrel ageing. A generous, harmonious wine on the palate, revealing black fruit and spices, supported by silky, elegant tannins well-balanced, this wine can be enjoyed now, but will also keep for several more years.

Château d’Aussière

The Lafite Rothschild family has been producing wine in Bordeaux since 1868. For six generations, they got to know this beautiful landscape and understand the unique traits of the vines from each appellation.

When Eric de Rothschild visited Aussières in 1999 he was immediately charmed by this place of untamed beauty, with amazing soul and history. The 170 hectares at the centre of the estate had been used to grow grapes for the better part of the last 2000 years. Over the past 20 years, tremendous work and investments have been engaged in both the vineyard and the winery, and Aussières is now recognized as one of the spearheads of Languedoc's renewal.


Blason is made from vines planted on deeper soils that confers the vines less water stress than the shallow soils of the plots going into the Grand Vin. The resulting wines is comparatively fruitier and more accessible in style. The traditional Corbières blend is made predominantly of Syrah, with Carignan, Mourvèdre and Grenache, whilst the cooler terroir of Ausisères confer the wine its exceptional balance and finesse.


Blason d'Aussières is made according to the traditionnal method. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete tanks. The Carignan partially undergo carbonic maceration, contributing to its distinctive style. During fermentation regular pump over allow a gentle extraction of the tannins and phenolic compounds. Once the fermentation is completed, the wine is left untouched for a couple of days. Total maceration time stretches 15-20 days.
