The Chateau Fombrauge is one of the most ancient crus of the Saint-Emilion appellation. Its 2015 vintage is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.
This ruby-tinted bright and limpid red 2015 Chateau Fombrauge releases a relatively expressive nose with satisfying complexity. The attack offers red berry, blackcurrant and cherry notes. Its palate, scrumptious, is quite supple and broad. It is characterised by a nice balance between acidity and barely existent tannins giving the wine a sensation of roundness. Its finish is elegant and fresh.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Fombrauge offers up aromas of baked berries, dried mulberries and preserved plums with touches of Indian spices and game. Medium to full-bodied with loads of expressive fruit, it has firm, grainy tannins and finishes with a lively lift.
