Product Overview

Appellation: Saint-Emilion Grand Cru AOC
Aging: 18 months in French oak, 45% new

94 Points - Vinous
"There’s a very rich and powerful core of red-plum and mulberry aromas and flavors here, delivering an assertive and very shimmery, polished palate. Great tannin texture. Long and regal. Every bit as good as the 2015, but more lively in 2016. Try from 2023." -AG Jan/2019

(93-95) Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This is a perfumed wine, likely thanks to a dollop (7%) of Cabernet Franc. It has ripe fruit characters, pleasant richness and a firm structure." -RV 4/2017

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Fombrauge sings of lively kirsch, baked black cherries and warm plums notes plus touches of potpourri, cigar box and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with decadent red and black fruit preserves, structured by velvety tannins and finishing with fantastic length." -LPB Nov/2018
