2018 vintage. With 58,6 hectares under vine this is the largest Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Emilion. It was bought in 1999 by Bernard Magrez, leading to a major improvement of the wines. Lately they seem to have toned down the oak handling a bit and this 2018 is the best Fombrauge I have ever tasted. Beautiful nose with red and black fruit, subtle spices with the oak providing a classy cedary touch. Full-bodied and layered, but with more finesse than ever, perfectly integrated oak and a long finish, this is terrific value at less than 25 euros.

The weekend before the 4th of July has crept up on us and I have opened a gift given to me from my oldest son from this past Christmas. The 2015 Château Fombrauge from St. Emilion. A Right Bank Bordeaux is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. On the nose is very expressive black cherry, black plum, blackberry, black currant, chocolate, graphite, cedar box, vanilla, violets and faint oak. The palate is a myriad of opulence with black cherry, blackberry, black plum, bell pepper, spices, black currant and graphite. This wine is full bodied with a silky mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead into a long beautiful black fruit finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia!
