Chateau d’Aussieres was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild in 1999 and, since then, this 550 hectare estate has undergone a vast rehabilitation programme. 158 hectares of vines have been replanted with carefully selected traditional Languedoc grape varieties: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan, complemented by Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay. The estate buildings (an entire small village, in fact) were restored at the same time and a new winery, with State-of-the-art equipment and technology, has been installed in the old cellars, in the heart of the vineyard. Château d’Aussières is the top cuvee resulting from very strict selection from the best parcels of the vineyard and produced in limited quantity. 40% is aged in oak barrels during 12 to 16 months.
Chateau d’Aussières Corbières is a wine of density and exceptional finesse which fully express the richness of the late-ripening and cool terroir, perfect for producing elegant wines. The Chateau d’Aussieres 2013 vintage is a blend of 56% Syrah, 17% Grenache, 16% Carignan and 11% Mourvèdre.
