Vinexpo 2005, which took place in Bordeaux between 19th and 23rd June, was the ideal time to present Château d’Aussières to the public and the press.
Chief executive officer of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Christophe Salin and the technical manager of Domaine d’Aussières Eric Kohler invited around thirty journalists to sample Château d’Aussières at the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) stand. This event was the occasion for the official launch of the wines from the estate: Château d’Aussières and the A d’Aussières in AOC Corbières, Aussières Red and Aussières White in the Pays d’Oc wines.
“Because of its exceptional geographical location, its unique wine-growing site and history, Château d’Aussières is a wild, natural site of great force and beauty.” The major importers of DBR wines were able to see for themselves how true Baron Eric’s statement was during an open day at the Domaine d’Aussières on 17th June. After a thorough visit of the vineyards and the new cellar, dinner in the magnificent parlour of Fontfroide Abbey established Aussières’ renaissance once and for all.
