Other Reviews....
The 2023 Fombrauge is terrific. Rich, deep and explosive, the 2023 packs a serious punch. There's plenty of the textural richness Bernard Magrez loves, but it’s just a bit tempered compared to previous years. Succulent red cherry, plum, rose petal, spice, menthol, licorice and mocha infuse the 2023 with notable depth. Bright acids refresh the palate nicely. Tasted four times. Drink 2027-2043.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

This has a creamy texture with round tannins, very attractive ripe fruit and a juicy finish of blackberry and chocolate. Medium to full body. More balanced than 2022?

James Suckling

Spicy red and black fruits, leafy herbs, toasted spices, and graphite all emerge from the 2023 Château Fombrauge, one plush, sexy, full-bodied Saint-Emilion that has perfectly ripe, polished tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish.

Jeb Dunnuck

Aging for 16 months in 35% new oak, this Merlot-dominated wine exudes a bright nose with freshness and red and blackberry fruit, both brambly and rich on the palate. Crafted from grapes harvested between 14 September and 10 October – a long harvest – and cropped at 49 hectolitres per hectare, the wine successfully balances the rather high alcohol of nearly 15% with a low pH of 3.54. Tasted twice with similar results. Drink 2026 - 2043.

Panos Kakaviatos - Decanter

Black cherries, flowers, chocolate covered plums , smoke, espresso, licorice and cherries create the perfume. The fruits are ripe, sweet, forward, and juicy with touches of chocolate, black raspberries, and cherries on the mid-palate, and in the finish. This should offer pleasure almost on release. The wine blends 90% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2027-2040.
