(JS94-95 points) A rich and layered Fombrauge with so much depth of fruit and fine tannins. Such balance and beauty. Very long and flavorful. Impressive.

(WA91-93 points) The 2015 Fombrauge is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that was cropped at 45 hl/ha between 24 September and 15 October. It is matured in 45% new oak barrels, 45% one-year-old and 10% in cement tank. It has a rich and generous bouquet with layers of black cherry, iodine and a hint of licorice. There is a slight headiness to these aromatics. The palate is showing more restrain and finesse, clean and pure with lightly spiced red berry fruit, hints of licorice and white pepper, a subtle bay leaf note towards the finish that displays well-integrated oak. Give this 5-8 years once in bottle and you will have a fine Saint Emilion on your hands. - Neal Martin

At its core the wine is a dense bright translucent red. The wine showcases bright ripe red berries, sweet coco powder and fresh violets. The palate is fresh and has a nice juicy mid-palate with chalky tannins and has a good balance and structure overall. The wine was aged in 40% new oak, 40% one year used oak and 20% large vat Fondres. It should drink well for the next 15+ years.
