Claude Mazière, who took over his family’s vineyard in 1954, took a different approach to the market than many of his neighbors on the hillside outside the walls of St-Emilion. He made his wine a restaurant staple here in the US by releasing it with ten years of age. When he passed away in 2008, his nephew, Alain Vauthier, of Château Ausone, purchased the property, with plans to eventually sell the wines somewhat earlier, with five years of age. Meanwhile, this 2005 is the current release, matured to silken elegance, still holding some fresh floral notes while the spicy, gamey flavors last, integrated and lovely.
