TASTING NOTES

"Extremely ripe blackberries, without a hint of overripeness, and a gloss of fine vanilla oak, making this an extremely attractive, modern style St.-Emilion that glides over the palate gracefully, ending in a spectacular interplay of fruit and fine-grained tannins. A blend of 60 per cent merlot and 40 per cent cabernet franc. Try in 2022." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Magrez-Fombrauge is gorgeous. Espresso, mocha, rose petal, chocolate and spice are all fused together. Sumptuous and racy in the glass, the 2016 boasts superb fruit density, with soft curves to match, and impeccable overall balance. Élevage has done wonders for the 2016, which is now more harmonious than it was when I tasted it several times from barrel. More importantly, it is flat-out delicious." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Features a broad-shouldered and dark profile, with a note of baker's chocolate leading off, followed by dark currant and warmed fig accents. Ample tobacco, loam and cocoa details stride through the finish. Not shy on heft, but pulls it off. Best from 2022 through 2032. 500 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Dark purple. Lots of savour and a certain tarry quality. Very sweet start. Then drying on the end. It's a bit too sculpted and forced for me – though much better balanced than it used to be. Hot finish." JancisRobinson.com
