Château Magrez Fombrauge 2013SKU :1617/13
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Bernard Magrez special cuvee, from a tiny, nearly five-acre parcel from a south-facing vineyard of the larger Fombrauge, is a final blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc from 22 hectoliters per hectare. It offers up a deep ruby/purple color, elegant sweet black cherry and blackcurrant fruit with vanillin and graphite notes. The wine is moderately endowed, shows good depth, sweet tannins and has the potential to achieve a 90-point score. This is a strong effort in this vintage. It should drink well for 10-12 years.
