What The Critics Say
92-94/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2019 Fombrauge has a delightful, very pure and opulent bouquet with vivid blackberries, blueberry and vanilla. The oak is nicely assimilated. The palate is well balanced with succulent ripe tannins, well judged acidity and a lightly spiced finish that lingers with just a dab of salted liquorice. This is showing a great deal of promise." drink 2025 - 2048
90-92/100 Wine Cellar Insider, Jeff Leve
"Dark in color with a blast of licorice, forest leaf, herbs, espresso and plums get you going. Rich, round, fruity, with layers of ripe, lusciously textured dark plums, licorice and smoke, all topped off with cocoa, the wine was made from blending 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc."
92-94/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Lisa Perotti-Brown
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Fombrauge gives up expressive scents of Black Forest cake, blackberry compote and Morello cherries with touches of plum preserves, spice box and potpourri. Full-bodied with a firm, velvety texture and plenty of freshness, all that rich, black fruit delivers a long, spice-sparked finish."
