The first written mention of Château Fombrauge dates back to the end of the Hundred Years War, which ended in 1453 in Castillon La Bataille. Monsieur Bernard Magrez’s acquisition of Fombrauge in March 1999 brought new perspectives for this Grand Cru de Saint-Emilion in terms of product quality and expertise, and in terms of communication, as Château Fombrauge returned to the Bordeaux wine market. In September 2012, the Château received the highest award for the Saint Emilion appellation when it was officially classified as a Grand Cru Classé, the crowning glory for all the hard work and investment undertaken to improve the estate.
Chateau Fombrauge Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2015 is a vivid and bright red with plum and spice plus hints of cedar and sandalwood. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. The plush tannins to this give it weight and opulence.
