The Chateau Fombrauge is one of the most ancient crus of the Saint-Emilion appellation. Its 2015 vintage is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc

This ruby-tinted bright and limpid red 2015 Chateau Fombrauge releases a relatively expressive nose with satisfying complexity. The attack offers red berry, blackcurrant and cherry notes. Its palate, scrumptious, is quite supple and broad. It is characterised by a nice balance between acidity and barely existent tannins giving the wine a sensation of roundness. Its finish is elegant and fresh. 

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Fombrauge is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that was cropped at 45 hl/ha between 24 September and 15 October. It is matured in 45% new oak barrels, 45% one-year-old and 10% in cement tank. It has a rich and generous bouquet with layers of black cherry, iodine and a hint of licorice. There is a slight headiness to these aromatics. The palate is showing more restrain and finesse, clean and pure with lightly spiced red berry fruit, hints of licorice and white pepper, a subtle bay leaf note towards the finish that displays well-integrated oak. Give this 5-8 years once in bottle and you will have a fine Saint Emilion on your hands.
