Chateau Fombrauge St. Emilion 2015


SKU 1564350886


Sight: Ruby red, with luster and clarity. Smell: Expressive nose of regular complexity, primary notes of red fruits, blackcurrants and cherry. Taste: Appealing, supple and light. The palate is characteristic of its balance: acidity and almost total absence of tannins enhance the impression of roundness. Attractive, elegant and fresh finish.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Chocolate and ripe berry flavors give the wine a full, opulent character. It has some rich, sweet tannins that fill out the bountiful fruits. The wine is in a style that takes full advantage of the quality of the vintage.

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Fombrauge offers up aromas of baked berries, dried mulberries and preserved plums with touches of Indian spices and game. Medium to full-bodied with loads of expressive fruit, it has firm, grainy tannins and finishes with a lively lift. Drink Date: 2019-2036.

Wine SpectatorGently steeped plum and black currant fruit melds with a smoldering charcoal note, while hints of bay leaf, tobacco and warm cast iron lurk. Offers a rounded, energetic structure, as a loamy echo lingers at the very end. A bit fresher than previous vintages. Best from 2020 through 2030. 24,167 cases made.
