"Dark and winey, with layers of black currant, fig paste and graphite pushed by slightly chewy-textured structure. Shows a lot of muscle now, with plenty of flesh on the finish." (WS)

"From the largest estate in St.-Emilion (130 acres), the opaque purple-colored 2010 Fombrauge was produced from late harvested fruit (the harvest finished on October 21). It possesses fresh notes of blueberries, red and black currants, lead pencil shavings and espresso roast. Medium to full-bodied and rich with sweet tannin, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years." (WA)

"Minerals, coffee, cassis and spice aromas open to a medium bodied wine, elegant textures and a dark berry, cassis and fennel finish that was slightly marred by a hint of tartness." (JL)

"Very friendly young red, with bright dark fruits and flowers on the nose and palate. Full and silky, with a long finish.$$" (JS)
