Most wine lovers know Bordeaux for its reputation of fine, sophisticated, and expensive wines. At Chateau Auguste, we strive to create extraordinary quality fine wine that doesn’t have to break the bank. We are passionate about our wine and make sure that our organically grown grapes are a true reflection of the terroir of the Right Bank of Bordeaux. We go above and beyond to produce high quality Bordeaux as well as Bordeaux rosé. Most rosé wine lovers know about rosé from Provence, but have you ever tried rosé from the Bordeaux region? Once you do, we know you will fall in love with Chateau Auguste. Blind taste tests have revealed that our Bordeaux rosé is truly exceptional; we’d venture to say it’s the best rosé from France.
Chateau Auguste is grown with 100% organic grapes where flavor is never compromised. And our wines have the depth and versatility to be enjoyed year around, bringing joie de vivre to any occasion.
Chateau Auguste Rosé
Very pale vivid pink. Vibrant, mineral-accented strawberry, red currant and tangerine scents carry a suave oral overtone. Racy, precise and light on its feet, tangy red berry flavors and a bracingly beautiful minerality. Lithe and pure, with no excess weight but plenty of depth. Stony and fresh finish displaying excellent clarity and persistence.
Chateau Auguste Rosé is an elegant and versatile wine that can be paired with many dishes, such as lobster, seared salmon or tuna; meat dishes such as duck, turkey and rare lamb; pasta and risotto, or lighter fare such as salads and vegetarian dishes. Pairs lovely with French cheeses such as Camembert and Brie, but of course, it can also be enjoyed alone.
Chateau Auguste Bordeaux
A well-balanced, well-structured medium-to full bodied Bordeaux. Rich with soft flavors are present with fresh black fruit and soft integrated tannins. There are aromas and flavors of blackberry, blueberry, dark plum, black cherry, licorice, and cedar, with a beautifully persistent finish.
Chateau Auguste is an approachable and exquisite Bordeaux in the whole sense of the word. Merlot is the dominant grape and Cabernet Sauvignon plays a supporting role, adding a little complexity to this great wine. This is a magnificent versatile wine that can be paired with steak, veal, venison and poultry or pasta dishes.
Hubert de Boüard
Hubert de Boüard was born in 1956 at Chateau Angélus and grew up on the family estate. Hubert is a winegrower at heart, whose single most influential experience was his childhood spent among the vines. Very early, he decided he would follow in the footsteps of the six generations before him and obtained his degree from the Bordeaux Faculty of Oenology, studying under Emile Peynaud.
Among his many titles, awards and consultancy worldwide, he currently holds the position of Grand Master and President of the Grand Conseil du Vin de Bordeaux. For Hubert, achieving balance in winemaking, while respecting people and nature is at the heart of everything he does.
A native of the historic town of Saintes, just north of Bordeaux, Damien Landouar is the winemaker and estate manager for Chateau Auguste. For more than two decades, Damien has dedicated his career to winemaking in the Bordeaux region. Damien has a degree in agronomy and completed post-graduate studies at Vayres Rural Institute to expand his knowledge of winegrowing, oenology and the wine trade.
In addition to his work with the Chateau Auguste estate, Damien also manages three other estates for owner Tom Sullivan including Château Gaby in the Canon-Fronsac appellation; Château Moya, a Castillon-Côtes-de-Bordeaux property, and Château du Parc, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
Chateau Auguste is a 74-acre Bordeaux Superieur estate located in the Right Bank region of Bordeaux within the Entre-Deux-Mers appellation. The enchanting name “Entre-Deux-Mers” – translated as “between two seas or tides” – refers to the Garonne and Dordogne rivers that form the boundaries of this triangular shaped region. For thousands of years, the two rivers have deposited sand and gravel eventually building up a sub rock of limestone. Given the fertile landscape, Romans were the first to plant vineyards here, with monks later developing the area during the Middle Ages.
The estate is organically farmed, with the chateau producing 16,000 cases a year.
