    2012 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux.

    The Chateau Fombrauge embodies the elegance of the Saint-Emilion Grands Crus Classés; it is the biggest estate of the appellation. The 2012 vintage blend is dominated by Merlot, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc
    The 2012 Chateau Fombrauge shows a purple-tinted very dense red hue. The former offers grilled vanilla aromas followed by woody notes as well as blackcurrant and black cherry hints. This medium-bodied Saint-Emilion carries an excellent concentration. This 2012 Grand Cru Classé reveals a good texture and develops ripped tannins which foreshadow a wonderful ageing potential for this wine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    From the stable of Bernard Magrez, Fombrauge is one of the largest estates on the Right Bank. Dominated by Merlot (90%, followed by 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon), the dense ruby/purple 2012 offers toasty vanilla and oaky notes interwoven with blackcurrants and black cherries. Its excellent concentration, medium body, expansive texture and ripe tannins suggest a wine that should be in its prime in 4-6 years and last for 15 or more.
