2003 Château Fombrauge, Grand Cru St-Emilion
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 164: The largest vineyard of St.-Emilion, acquired by Bordeaux visionary Bernard Magrez nearly a decade ago, the wines of Fombrauge have soared in quality. A special five-acre parcel is segregated for their luxury cuvee, Magrez-Fombrauge. Fombrauge tends to be a blend of approximately 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. With notes of white chocolate, figs, plums, and black cherry liqueur, the heady, fleshy, seductive, medium to full-bodied 2003 should be enjoyed over the next 6-8 years. 89 points.
