Sight: Ruby red, with luster and clarity. Smell: 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.

Wine SpectatorDark and winey, with layers of black currant, fig paste and graphite pushed by slightly chewy-textured structure. Shows a lot of muscle now, with plenty of flesh on the finish. (BT)

Wine AdvocateFrom the largest estate in St.-Emilion (130 acres), the opaque purple-colored 2010 Fombrauge was produced from late harvested fruit (the harvest finished on October 21). It possesses fresh notes of blueberries, red and black currants, lead pencil shavings and espresso roast. Medium to full-bodied and rich with sweet tannin, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years.

Robert Parker, May 2011
