2011 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe

Chateau Fombrauge is the largest domaine in Saint-Emilion. As France's heritage, Chateau Fombrauge maintained remarkable consistency and unparalleled pioneer spirit. The 2011 vintage blend is Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc.

The wine's purple hue boasts beautiful dark-ruby shades. This Grand Cru Classe from Bordeaux reveals black cherry and blackberry notes. The palate is sweet and round, with velvety tannins leading to a seductive finish. The 2011 Chateau Fombrauge is a true revelation: intensely pleasurable!

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The estate of Bernard Magrez has fashioned an attractive dark ruby/purple-colored 2011 offering lots of mulberry and black cherry fruit as well as a sexy, soft, round core, velvety tannin and a heady, lush, seductive finish. It is another brilliant effort from Bernard Magrez's team. A sleeper of the vintage, it should provide immense pleasure over the next 7-10 years.
