Winemaker's Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

"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. "
89 Points

"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. "

Wonderful wine. We have purchased many cases in both usa and in france and have received many complimments on it when we have served it to guests, both personal and business. It's our all time favorite, but it also has sentimental value to us now, so we are not entirely unbiased. :)

Style: Earth & Spicy
Somewhat meaty and earthy on the nose, some notes of spice, mushroom and black cherry. Tasted cherries in the background, with some raw broccoli and forest floor. Ripe tannins. Drinks well and offers a 30-45 sec finish. Not bad....would buy again.

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.
