Winemaker Notes

Fombrauge produces wines of great finesse that have caught the attention of food and wine critics.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Planted in the eastern half of Saint-Emilion, this Merlot-dominated vineyard also benefits from Cabernet Franc. That gives the aromatic nature of the powerful fruit. For the rest, there is richness, dark black juicy fruits and intensity, all held together by a fine structure.

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

A dark plum/ruby color is accompanied by a big, sweet black raspberry, cherry, lead pencil shavings, crushed rock, and spring flower-scented bouquet. Supple tannin, low acidity, and excellent ripeness characterize this hedonistic, well-made St.-Emilion. It should drink beautifully for 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator

Aromas of fresh mushroom, crushed berries and cedar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced. A very pretty wine. Best after 2011.

Chateau Fombrauge
The history of Fombrauge realizes the genesis of great wines in St. Emilion. The acquisition of Fombrauge in March 1999 by Bernard Magrez gave the vintage a boost in terms of product quality by bringing the rigor of expertise.

The heart of an area of 75 hectares, 52 planted to date, is beautifully situated on a limestone plateau. The vineyard possesses the three main soil profiles of Saint-Emilion, producing wines of great finesse.
