Fombrauge 2023

Fombrauge

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drinking Window: 2042.0

Château Fombrauge is a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru property. It is the largest Grand Cru Classé property in the appellation, with a 59-hectare (143-acre) vineyard, and like many others in the region, has a Merlot-dominant blend. All of these factors contribute to a fresh and abundant wine that is best after at least five years of bottle ageing. Its sprawling vineyard means that it has a diverse range of soils that include chalky clay on limestone to iron-rich deposits and molasse soils. Fombrauge therefore has a highly complex terroir which is unusual for the appellation. Today the vineyards are planted with c.85% Merlot and c.15% Cabernet Franc, with the vines averaging about 30 years of age.

CRITIC REVIEWS

91-93
Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2023 Fombrauge has impressive purity on the nose, with notes of ripe plums and fresh blackberries followed by hints of licorice, cedar, and wild thyme. The medium to full-bodied palate is refreshing and vibrant, with plenty of black fruit and a peppery finish.

Jeb Dunnuck

Spicy red and black fruits, leafy herbs, toasted spices, and graphite all emerge from the 2023 Château Fombrauge, one plush, sexy, full-bodied Saint-Emilion that has perfectly ripe, polished tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish.
