2020 Château Fombrauge is released en primeur at just just £252 per dozen in bond. Scoring 92-94 points from Neal Martin and 94-95 points from Suckling (who asks, rhetorically, if this is their best ever vintage) it looks like a superb value Saint-Émilion in a great year for Right Bank wines.

Tasting Notes"The 2020 Fombrauge has a deep garnet-purple color and expressive notes of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and baked plums, plus hints of espresso, graphite and cedar chest with a waft of Sichuan pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate is elegantly crafted with lovely freshness and a well-tamed, grainy texture, finishing long and earthy. Drink 2025-2040. 91-93 points" Lisa Perotti-Brown, RobertParker.com------"The 2020 Fombrauge has a crisp blackberry, blueberry and cedar nose, subtle pine aromas filtering through with aeration. The medium-bodied palate delivers crunchy black fruit laced with cedar and very light ash notes. Good acidity here, and nice structure; a convincingly more classic Fombrauge, this, with fine grip toward the finish. I approve. 92-94 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com------"The inky-hued 2020 Château Fombrauge is another wonderful Saint-Emilion that shines on all accounts. Possessing terrific purity in its cassis-styled fruits as well as notes of violets, chocolate, and chalky minerality, this puppy is medium to full-bodied, has a great mid-palate, background oak, and outstanding length. Tasted twice. 93-95 points" Jebdunnuck.com------"This is really finely textured with beautiful tannins that run the length of the wine and go on and on. It’s full-bodied, yet refined and poised. Pretty finish. Best ever? 94-95 points" jamessuckling.com
