Grape Varieties: 2015 Blend 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
Sight: Ruby red, with luster and clarity.

Critic Reviews

94 Points:, Feb 2018 | Vintage 2015

A vivid and bright red with plum and spice plus hints of cedar and sandalwood. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. The plush tannins to this give it weight and opulence. Needs a year or two to soften.

Food Pairing:

“Supreme of partridge with cabbage and foie gras” (Joël Robuchon)

The Chateau Fombrauge estate goes back to the 16th century, which makes it one of the oldest châteaux in the Saint Emilion region. The beautiful 17th century old country manor was originally the cloister of the town’s Carthusian Monastery. Owned by Jacques de Canolle in 1466, the estate later belonged to the Dumas de Fombrauge family, who implemented the first quality winemaking in the estate in the 18th century
