2010 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux.

The Chateau Fombrauge is one of the oldest Saint-Emilion vineyard, located on a 52 hectares surface area. The 2010 Chateau Fombrauge is 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon
This 2010 Saint-Emilion exhibits a purple-tinted dark red colour, obtained thanks to the late harvest of the grapes. On the nose, it is fruity and reveals grilled notes. On the palate, the 2010 Chateau Fombrauge offers fresh blueberry, red and black currants, and graphite shaving notes. The finish is creamy and delicious.  

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is one of the better, more supple Fombrauge wines to date, with a better integration of toasty oak than I have usually seen at this stage of this wine's development. The grapes were picked late, with the harvest finishing on October 22, and that has given the wine wonderful ripeness and plenty of chocolaty espresso notes intermixed with incense, black cherries and black currants. The oak is subtle, and the wine full-bodied, attractive, deep, round and generous. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
