Tasting Notes: "The 2019 Fombrauge is one of the best wines I have tasted from this property in some time. It shows all the richness that is typical of Bernard Magrez's style but with less heaviness and a good deal of aromatic presence that helps balance things out. Sweet dark cherry, chocolate, leather, licorice and mocha build into the resonant, super-expressive finish. The 2019 is a classy Fombrauge."- Vinous. 

"This rolls through with a cashmere grace, offering cassis, steeped plum and blackberry puree flavors infused with black tea and incense notes. A late alder thread keeps this nicely grounded. Suave. Merlot and Cabernet Franc."- Wine Spectator. 

"Perfumed nose of dried flowers, sandalwood, pine cones, currants, cassis, cloves, walnuts and spiced plums. It's medium-to full-bodied with polished, ripe and creamy tannins. Plush and velvety with a supple, fresh finish."- James Suckling. 

"There is a lot of energy to engage with on this powerfully built Grand Cru Classé from Bernard Magrez. Ripe blackberry and black cherry kick things off with warm baking spice and tobacco debuting next on this medium-bodied, well-structured, full-finish wine."- Decanter. 

"The 2019 Fombrauge exhibits rich aromas of cherries, dark chocolate, plum preserve, licorice and new oak, followed by a full-bodied, rich and fleshy palate that's soft and fleshy, with a sweet core of fruit, ripe acids and rich, powdery tannins. This is a generous, front-loaded Saint-Emilion from Bernard Magrez."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 

Varietal: 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.
