Description

97-98  James Suckling
“Exceptional depth and power to this, at an early stage, with dark-berry, chocolate, toasted-oak and walnut character. Tight and compact. Fine-grained tannins. About one-third co-fermented with cabernet franc and merlot. Could be one of the best from here.”

94-96  Jeb Dunnuck
“One of the original Saint-Émilion garage wines, the tiny production 2018 Château Magrez Fombrauge (the blend is normally 60-80% Merlot with the balance Cabernet Franc, brought up in new barrels) is another awesome wine that packs incredible richness and depth yet stays light and seamless. Its deep purple color is followed by a mammoth-sized bouquet of black fruits, scorched earth, chocolate, and smoky minerality. Deep, full-bodied, incredibly sexy and textured on the palate, with sweet tannins, it’s certainly not for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors but is a brilliant wine in the making. It’s going to take 4-5 years of bottle age (or more) to shed some baby fat, but it should age for 2+ decades.”

89-92  Wine Spectator
Features a solid core of dark plum and blackberry compote flavors, liberally laced with black licorice notes. The frankly toasty finish needs to harmonize a bit more. – James Molesworth
