A beautiful concentration of fruit and aromas, this is a generous, full-bodied wine that offers a complex palate of flavours from deep within the identity of the terroir, with scents of the garrigue (broom, rock rose), and aromatic herbs (thyme, sage, juniper and rosemary). The batches produced by carbonic maceration give the blend a creamy, velvety and yet firm structure, with an aromatic palate of fresh, very ripe fruit (crushed berries, strawberries).

Due to its exceptional geographical location, the unique wine-growing site and its history, Château d’Aussières is a place of wild, natural beauty that emanates tremendous power. These words of Baron Eric explain why he fell in love with Aussières and what led Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) to restore and revitalize one of the oldest and most beautiful wine-making properties in the Narbonne region. Château d’Aussières has made wine since the Roman era, a period when the great properties of the “Roman Province of Narbonne” were recorded in the land registry and became the main wine suppliers to Rome.
