Tasting Notes: Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 91 Points: “One would think Fombrauge was a wine to drink in its first decade of life, but this 2003 proves otherwise. Lots of cedar, fruitcake, spice box, black currant and cherry notes jump from the glass of this complex, medium-bodied, silky smooth, fully mature, delicious St.-Emilion. It is a testament to the vision of Bernard Magrez and his consulting oenologist, Michel Rolland. It is a sleeper of the vintage that should last another 4-6 years.” (RP) Aug 2014
