This wine, the largest in St-Émilion with 57 hectares, has been offering since its purchase by Mr. Magrez (1997) structured wines that do not deny their terroir, full, gourmet and devilishly seductive thanks to a luxurious maturing process.

Revue du Vin de France :
Dupont (Le Point) :
Quarin : 88/100 « Bouche ronde, agréable, fruitée et bâtie pour faire plaisir sans avoir beaucoup de fond dans la persistance. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « Fombrauge is super-expressive in 2019. Supple and nuanced, with lovely aromatic brightness, the 2019 has a lot to offer. 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. »
Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Fombrauge has a delightful, very pure and opulent bouquet with vivid blackberries, blueberry and vanilla. The oak is nicely assimilated. This is showing a great deal of promise. »
