Size: 750.00ml
A Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe, Chateau Fombrauge is located on the right bank of Bordeaux. Its vineyard is one of the oldest in Saint-Emilion. Located in Saint Christophe des Bardes, the vineyard covers 58 hectares of vines planted in a great clay-limestone soil with molasses du fronsadais. The 2018 is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Precisely hand picked over many passes when the fruit was perfectly ripe, hand sorted and destemmed, the fermentation was carried out in oak, stainless steel and small concrete tanks using gravity. Aged for 16 months in new barrels (40%) and barrels of one previous wine (60%). “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Fombrauge gives up expressive scents of Black Forest cake, blackberry compote and Morello cherries with touches of plum preserves, spice box and potpourri. Full-bodied with a firm, velvety texture and plenty of freshness, all that rich, black fruit delivers a long, spice-sparked finish.” – Robert Parkers Wine Advocate (93 Points)
