Available for:
Color: Ruby red, with luster and clarity. Nose: Expressive nose of regular complexity, primary notes of red fruits, blackcurrants and cherry. Taste: Appealing, supple and light. The palate is characteristic of its balance: acidity and almost total absence of tannins enhance the impression of roundness. Attractive, elegant and fresh finish.

91-93. Barrel Sample. While there are some initial bitter chocolate extraction flavors, the main thrust of this wine shows rich plums and opulent fruitiness. It is a concentrated wine with a streak of acidity that gives it a delicious final lift.

The 2014 Fombrauge continues to feel a little heady and alcoholic on the nose as it did from barrel, and did not quite convey the delineation of its peers. The palate is actually better with plenty of sappy red berry fruit, the keen line of acidity countering what is a powerful and quite muscular Saint Emilion. If the aromatics just gain more nuance and terroir-expression, then this could evolve into a fine 2014 Right Bank, so afford it three or four years in the cellar.

This has a solid core of enticing raspberry, plum and blackberry pâte de fruit notes, underscored by singed tobacco and apple wood accents. Shows good energy through the finish despite the heft. Best from 2018 through 2022.
