Winemaker Notes

The vines, on slopes and the base of slopes, mostly have direct southern exposure. The soil-types and topography encompass the three main kinds of terroir at Saint Emilion. Fombrauge is thus able to produce wines of great finesse. The fact that the vineyard lies on several distinct types of terroir adds to its particularity.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
This is so rich and layered with beautiful ripe fruit and round tannins. Tar, chocolate, light vanilla and currants. It's complete and complex. Superb for this estate. Better in three to five years but fascinating to tasting now.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Dark in color, with intense aromas of dried mushroom and very ripe fruit. Almost raisiny. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Turns meaty and raisiny. A very mature style, but one that I like a lot. This is always a wonderful value. Best after 2013. 13,000 cases made.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An in-your-face style of wine, the 2005 Fombrauge (the largest vineyard in St.-Emilion) is a blend of 77% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The inky/purple color is followed by a big, sweet nose of chocolate fudge, jammy black cherries, blackberries, smoke, and pain grille. This chewy, powerful, decadent St.-Emilion is a modern-styled, impressively endowed, pure, intense wine. It is another brilliant example of winemaking from proprietor Bernard Magrez. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+.

Chateau Fombrauge Winery Video
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.
