Winemaker Notes
Ruby red, with luster and clarity. Expressive nose of regular complexity, primary notes of red fruits, blackcurrants and cherry. Appealing, supple and light. The palate is characteristic of its balance: acidity and almost total absence of tannins enhance the impression of roundness. Attractive, elegant and fresh finish.

  • 92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    “The 2015 Fombrauge is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. I appreciated this Saint-Émilion in barrel and now in bottle it continues to impress: voluptuous black cherries intermix with crème de cassis and violets on the nose. It almost flirts with jamminess but it stops short and retains freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with plump ripe tannin, caressing in texture with black cherries, black plum, cassis and a touch of white pepper. It feels long in the mouth and conveys a sense of approachability, a wine to enjoy over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2020 – 2032.” -Neal Martin-

  • 92 Vinous Antonio Galloni

    “The 2015 Fombrauge is very pretty. Succulent red cherry, mint and rose petal give the wine an attractive upper register and a good deal of freshness to balance the overt fruit. Powerful and rich, the 2015 has quite a bit to offer. Raspberry jam, mocha, espresso, rose petal and spice add the closing shades of nuance. Readers should expect a fairly bold style – as is the case with all of Bernard Magrez’s wines… Tasted three times.”
