Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Fombrauge Grand Cru Classe 2019


Lobenberg: Eines der Brot und Butter Weingüter in Saint Emilion, die immer stimmen. Fombrauge, Grand Mayne, Grand Pontet etc.. Alles passt, alles ist archetypisch, moderner Saint Emilion. Aus der Gruppe um Bernard Magrez, dem auch Pape Clement gehört. Typische Saint Emilion Nase, reife Lakritze, Veilchen, viel schwarze Frucht, Schwarzkirsche, die Nase ist fein und elegant, trotz der Wucht. Süßer Mund, sehr aromatisch, sehr geschmackvoll, passt gut, ein bisschen trocken vom Holz, ein bisschen extrahiert. Aber in Summe harmonisch und gut getroffen. Nicht ganz groß, aber durchaus fein mit toller Balance. 94-95/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Fombrauge Grand Cru Classe

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2019 Château Fombrauge is terrific and has a good mix of richness, concentration, and elegance. Giving up notes of mulled ripe cherries, Asian spices, blackberries, tobacco, and cedar pencil on the nose, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless, layered, pure mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and just beautiful overall balance. It's already drinking beautifully today yet will evolve positively for 5-7 years and hold for another 15-20 years. It's another brilliant Saint-Emilion in the vintage. This seemed more modern and polished from barrel but shows a very classic style now from bottle. 94+/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau Fombrauge Grand Cru Classe

-- Wine Enthusiast: While this wine is tightly structured, it also has plenty of generous black fruits that give succulent ripeness. The wine should certainly age well. 94/100


Suckling über: Chateau Fombrauge Grand Cru Classe

-- Suckling: Perfumed nose of dried flowers, sandalwood, pine cones, currants, cassis, cloves, walnuts and spiced plums. It’s medium-to full-bodied with polished, ripe and creamy tannins. Plush and velvety with a supple, fresh finish. Drink from 2024. 93/100


Wine Spectator über: Chateau Fombrauge Grand Cru Classe

-- Wine Spectator: This rolls through with a cashmere grace, offering cassis, steeped plum and blackberry purée flavors infused with black tea and incense notes. A late alder thread keeps this nicely grounded. Suave. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2035. 93/100


Jane Anson über: Chateau Fombrauge Grand Cru Classe

-- Jane Anson: Touch of reduction on the nose, clear effort to keep the fruits to the fore, raspberry, red cherry and blueberry. This is good quality and vibrant, more pared down than in older vintages of Fombrauge, definite edges of flint and smoke, still big shouldered and muscular. Tasted twice. 93/100


Galloni über: Chateau Fombrauge Grand Cru Classe

-- Galloni: Fombrauge is super-expressive in 2019. Supple and nuanced, with lovely aromatic brightness, the 2019 has a lot to offer. There is plenty of the richness that is such a signature of Bernard Magrez's wines, and yet all the elements are so nicely balanced. Sweet red cherry, mocha, espresso, dried flowers and leather are some of the many aromas and flavors that give this silky Saint Émilion so much appeal. Tasted two times. 92-94/100
