Chateau Fombrauge 2020 St. Emilion Grand Cru Bordeaux France (Futures Pre-Sale)
Pre-Sale Ships after September 2022
95 Points James Suckling - This is really finely textured with beautiful tannins that run the length of the wine and go on and on. It's full-bodied, yet refined and poised. Pretty finish. Best ever?
95 Points Jeb Dunnuck - The inky-hued 2020 Château Fombrauge is another wonderful Saint-Emilion that shines on all accounts. Possessing terrific purity in its cassis-styled fruits as well as notes of violets, chocolate, and chalky minerality, this puppy is medium to full-bodied, has a great mid-palate, background oak, and outstanding length. Tasted twice.
95 Points Wine Enthusiast - From vines surrounding one of Saint-Emilion's most beautiful château, this wine is massively rich with dense tannins, dark chocolate and rich berry flavors. Obviously, it has a fine future, ripe with powerful fruits and structure.
94 Points Vinous - The 2020 Fombrauge has a crisp blackberry, blueberry and cedar nose, subtle pine aromas filtering through with aeration. The medium-bodied palate delivers crunchy black fruit laced with cedar and very light ash notes. Good acidity here, and nice structure; a convincingly more classic Fombrauge, this, with fine grip toward the finish. I approve. –Neal Martin
93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2020 Fombrauge has a deep garnet-purple color and expressive notes of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and baked plums, plus hints of espresso, graphite and cedar chest with a waft of Sichuan pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate is elegantly crafted with lovely freshness and a well-tamed, grainy texture, finishing long and earthy.
