Clear, dark and deep-coloured. Attractive colour. A seductive nose with fruit and floral notes coming to the fore. Then red berries in particular come through with hints of black cherries, blackberries and elderberries. Immediately delicious and perfumed, very fruity and with a soft mouth-feel. And yet it rises to a crescendo in the finish.

The deep ruby/purple-colored 2018 Château Fombrauge is a beauty and one of the finest examples of this cuvée to date. Smoked black fruits, tobacco, graphite, and hints of chocolate all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, rich, impressively concentrated Saint-Émilion that has ripe, sweet tannins, a layered texture, and a great finish. It's a sexy, pleasure-bent beauty that still has class and impeccable balance. Tasted twice.

A warm, inviting style, with crushed plum and boysenberry puree notes caressed by anise and singed apple wood accents. Shows nice drive on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

The 2018 Fombrauge looks very promising on the nose with copious black cherry and boysenberry fruit, though no signs of excess or warmth of alcohol. I appreciate the delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins, velvety smooth with ripe blackberry and raspberry finish laced with marmalade. The 40% new oak is nicely integrated here and it should age with style.
