All Vintages of this wine

In this year, Magrez Fombrauge 2014 has blended 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. The yield was small ( 20 hl per hectare), and offers a wine of density, volume and a great aromatic concentration. The charming nose proposes a wide range of fleshy black fruit flavours such as mashed blackberry, blueberry and red plum. The aromatic expression of this Saint-Emilion seems unlimited.
The mouth confirms the perfume of fresh cherries and expresses a delicate tannic structure finishing in a great flavour of balsamic cedar. The entire wine is fresh, pleasing and well established.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Magrez-Fombrauge still has that rich, almost creamy-scented bouquet, opulent and ravishing yet missing some of the precision and terroir expression of its peers. The palate is candied and sweet on the entry with coconut-tinged red fruit, well-judged acidity and decent tension on the finish. Yet there is no question in my mind that the oak is too dominant, rending this an admittedly seductive yet oddly monotone Saint Emilion, just as I found it in barrel.
