Chateau Magrez Fombrauge (Futures Pre-Sale) 2019
The Barrel Sample for this wine is above 14% ABV.
*Please note that the Wine.com price of this Bordeaux Future does not include any tariffs. As of today, there remains a 25% tariff imposed on French wines by the U.S. and approved by the World Trade Organization related to the Airbus/Boeing trade dispute. We are hopeful that this tariff will be removed in advance of the wine being released to be imported into the U.S., as Bordeaux Futures typically ship 2-years after they are offered. Should any tariff still be in effect when the wine is ready to be imported, we will contact affected customers via email with an update to our plans and timing.

The plot-by-plot selection, the age of the vines, the specific orientation of the vine rows, the proportions of grape varieties used and the control over vigor of the vines all give this cuvee its special quality. The grapes are hand-picked. A team of 80 people de-stem them, again by hand, one by one.
As production is intentionally very low, vinification is conducted in small vats. All winery operations are performed using the gravity feed technique.
