Information on the vintage 1940 red Bordeaux:
Distinctly better than the 1939 but tough wartime conditions, shortage of labour and materials. Average-sized crop. Some attractive wines though uneven.

As AngelusCheval Blanc and Pavie, Ausone is ranked as Premier Grand Cru Classé A in Saint Emilion. Ausone is a tiny area of 7 acres located on the slopes of St. Emilion. Situated on the location of the villa of the Latin poet Ausonius, the area enjoys a southern exposure, terraced vineyards and very old  grape varieties. The cellar, dug into the rock, is extraordinary.  The wine, long known to be assertive, they are dense, intense with complex aromas that allow Ausone to rank amongst the best Bordeaux estates. The grape varieties are merlot, cabernet franc with a majority of cabernet franc (55%).
