(2010 Vintage) The 2009 Fombrauge has the potential to be the finest wine ever made at this property. Michel Rolland is the consulting This has a really nice graphite frame that drives the core of fig, plum and boysenberry fruit authoritatively. Dense ganache, espresso and tar on the finish. Gripping structure is tight now, but should meld in the cellar as the underlying feel is energetic.

    (2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Bought by Bernard Magrez in 1999, this property has 52 hectares (ha) of vines. 70% Merlot plus the two Cabernets make up the blend here, giving a rich and plummy nose, still stlightly closed. Rich and ripe on the palate. Drink now to five years. Amy Wi
