The product of visionary Bernard Magrez it boasts an opaque purple color in addition to copious notes of espresso white chocolate blueberries boysenberries and blackberries. Full-bodied tannic youthful and loaded with potential it may merit an even higher score in a few years. Drink it over the next 20 years. The debut vintage the 2000 is awesome at age 10 with at least another decade or more of improvement ahead of it.

Aged for 18-20 in new French oak barrels. Yields are kept purposely tiny made from separate small parcels of Fombrauge that Bernard Magrez deems to be part of his 'cru d'exception.' The grapes are destemmed by hand all processed by gravity. The 2010 Magrez-Fombrauge is simply fabulous with concentrated aromas of dark blue and black berries on the nose leading to an opulent liqueur that is not be missed. On the mouth it is smooth rich and full of minerals and fruit. But it is also tightly wound revealing its structure only at the end. A true cellar candidate and a top wine from St. Emilion.
