This is sheer nectar of the vine from proprietor Bernard Magrez's Chateau Fombrauge. One of the vintage's superstars this prodigious effort continues to put on weight and richness. From the bottle it may be even more impressive than it was from cask. An unctuously-textured blockbuster with a wealth of fruit and a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers espresso blackberry liqueur minerals and toasty oak it is full-bodied and seamless with extraordinary intensity purity and symmetry. It is rare to find a wine this fat and concentrated particularly from Bordeaux. As it sat in the glass an intense note of graphite emerged but the oak (it was aged and went through malolactic in 100% new oak) has nearly disappeared! Where did it go? Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.

Pretty modern red. Lovely aromas of crushed fruit coffee and cream. Full-bodied with lots of new oak but it?s silky tasty and fruity. Silly price. Best after 2007. 500 cases made. –JS
