    In 2014, the picking of the grapes at Château Fombrauge started on the 2nd of October and lasted until the 20th in Saint-Emilion. This year Fombrauge 2014 has got the quality of the matured Merlot grapes thanks to the heavy soil which gives freshness and an intense density of aromas to the wine. Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this wine shows strong notes of black fruits ( blackcurrant, mashed blackberry, liquorice and cedar) coupled with a refreshing mineral touch. On the mouth, the wine is nervous and appears to be sweet. It turns into a noble and elegant tannic structure with well established tannins - they are well extracted and offer a dominating docility. The finish is fruity and long. This is a wine of great potential.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Fombrauge continues to feel a little heady and alcoholic on the nose as it did from barrel, and did not quite convey the delineation of its peers. The palate is actually better with plenty of sappy red berry fruit, the keen line of acidity countering what is a powerful and quite muscular Saint Emilion. If the aromatics just gain more nuance and terroir-expression, then this could evolve into a fine 2014 Right Bank, so afford it three or four years in the cellar.
