2016 Chateau Fombrauge Saint-Emilion Grand Cru France
Blend: 93% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc
There’s a very rich and powerful core of red-plum and mulberry aromas and flavors here, delivering an assertive and very shimmery, polished palate. Great tannin texture. Long and regal. Every bit as good as the 2015, but more lively in 2016. Try from 2023.
Rated 94 Points James Suckling
This is a perfumed wine, likely thanks to a dollop (7%) of Cabernet Franc. It has ripe fruit characters, pleasant richness and a firm structure.
