The Chateau Magrez Fombrauge vineyard dedicated to the production of white wines covers 2.20 hectares around Saint-Christophe des Bardes. The vines are 17 years old on average and are planted in clay-limestone soils upon a limestone base with asteria. The vineyard is covered with natural grass.
Produced in the Bordeaux appellation, the white wine of Chateau Magrez Fombrauge is a rare wine. This cuvée is made from vines planted in the town of Saint-Christophe des Bardes. The blend made from the emblematic white grape varieties of Bordeaux highlights the unique nature of the Saint-Emilion limestone.

On fine lees for 8 to 10 months with stirring of the lees 1 to 2 times per week.
