Chateau Fombrauge St. Emilion Pre Arrival 2016

External Review:

This is one of the better, more supple Fombrauge wines to date, with a better integration of toasty oak than I have usually seen at this stage of this wine’s development. The grapes were picked late, with the harvest finishing on October 22, and that has given the wine wonderful ripeness and plenty of chocolaty espresso notes intermixed with incense, black cherries and black currants. The oak is subtle, and the wine full-bodied, attractive, deep, round and generous. Drink it over the next 10–12 years.

First off...let me say that I am not a wine connoisseur! I own an eBay store in South Jersey and a client of mine brought in a box of 12 assorted wines that he wanted to sell! You cannot sell wine on eBay...Hence, I am trying to find out the value for this bottle of wine (Château Fombrauge Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 1979). If anyone could help I would appreciate it. Sincerely, Andrew Palermo

I would like to know what the price of this would be should a bottel or magnum be available.

This has a really nice graphite frame that drives the core of fig, plum and boysenberry fruit authoritatively, with dense ganache, espresso and tar on the finish. The grip is keeping things tight now, but this should meld in the cellar, as the underlying feel is energetic. Best from 2015 through 2025.

The 2009 Fombrauge has the potential to be the finest wine ever made at this property.
