Massively rich and beautifully endowed bottle. It has been showing great since the day it was released and today was no different. Loads of fruit. Soft velvety tannins and a long finish

Really excellent - smells a bit like Napa, ripe plum and currant with some new oak spice, but the palate takes it back to BDX, dry and earthy. The 8 years of age have made this really sing, with acid and tannins beautifully integrated. Great with a grilled hanger steak.

Nice wine. Beautiful for the price. Several years of age worthy now and for the next 5 years.

This is unbelievable especially for the price. It is very ripe and rich but has some lift from all that st emilion limestone. BERNARD magrez know what he is doing. There is not a rough edge to be found here and although this beauty is opulent and wide open today, I suspect it has many years ahead of it. All for around $30 or $40 bucks. Crazy. (Napa richness and bordeaux persistence)

A lovely Bordeaux still very young despite is 10 years of age, lovely tempting deep garnet color, inviting aromas of cassis, black current, black peeper, black cherries, coffee, vanilla and earthiness, a full elegant body with firm dry tannins, the oak is still very present and needs a few more years to open up, acidity is lovely and finish is long and complex. A good Saint Emilion, from a truly successful vintage. My score 89, drink to 2024

The weekend before the 4th of July has crept up on us and I have opened a gift given to me from my oldest son from this past Christmas. The 2015 Château Fombrauge from St. Emilion. A Right Bank Bordeaux is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose is very expressive black cherry, black plum, blackberry, black currant, chocolate, graphite, cedar box, vanilla, violets and faint oak.

The palate is a myriad of opulence with black cherry, blackberry, black plum, bell pepper, spices, black currant and graphite.

This wine is full bodied with a silky mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead into a long beautiful black fruit finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

2010 vintage (Bernard Magrez bought the estate, the largest Cru Classé in Saint-Emilion in 1999). Blend of 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8 % Cabernet sauvignon. Modern style, drinking beautifully now. Nice truffle nose, and smooth, velvety taste. Not the most complex, but excellent value.
