From vines surrounding one of Saint-Emilion's most beautiful château, this wine is massively rich with dense tannins, dark chocolate and rich berry flavors. Obviously, it has a fine future, ripe with powerful fruits and structure.

This has aromas of cigar box, cedar, blueberries and pine cones. Firm, polished tannins provide sturdy support, yet remain silky. Medium to full body. Very fine and classy.

Cassis, black raspberries, graphite, spicy oak, and floral notes all emerge from the 2020 Chateau Fombrauge, a wonderfully textured, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, yet elegant Saint-Emilion. A wine that builds beautifully with time in the glass, it complex, has ripe, silky tannins, and a great finish. Tasted on more than one occasion, it never failed to impress. Drink this richly textured, sexy, beautiful 2020 over the coming 15+ years. Best After 2023

Frankly ripe and forward, with a broad swath of dark plum, blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors that course through, supported by light licorice root and alder threads. Reveals a warm earth note that drapes over the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Confident and structured, offering a velvet texture and dense plum and blackberry fruits, plenty of punch with ground coffee on the finish.

Aromas of sweet cherries, jam berries, dark chocolate and toasty new oak introduce the 2020 Fombrauge, a medium to full-bodied, sweet and fleshy wine with a liqueured core of fruit, ripe tannins and a broad, expansive finish. It will appeal to readers who gravitate to riper, softer styles of Saint-Émilion. Best After 2023
