Ch Fombrauge 2019
Saint-Emilion€ 26.80/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 92-94/100
Fombrauge is super-expressive in 2019. Supple and nuanced, with lovely aromatic brightness, the 2019 has a lot to offer. There is plenty of the richness that is such a signature of Bernard Magrez’s wines, and yet all the elements are so nicely balanced. Sweet red cherry, mocha, espresso, dried flowers and leather are some of the many aromas and flavors that give this silky Saint Émilion so much appeal. Tasted two times.
The Wine Advocate – 91-93/100
Very deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Magrez Fombrauge charges out of the gates with exuberant notions of blueberry pie, Black Forest cake and licorice plus hints of spice cake, clove oil and eucalyptus. The medium-bodied palate is jam-packed with ripe, concentrated black and blue fruit preserves, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with a minty kick.
