Region: Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France
Producer: Chateau Fombrauge
Grape: Merlot (90%), Cabernet Franc (10%)
Type: Red Wine
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Fombrauge gives up expressive scents of Black Forest cake, blackberry compote and Morello cherries with touches of plum preserves, spice box and potpourri. Full-bodied with a firm, velvety texture and plenty of freshness, all that rich, black fruit delivers a long, spice-sparked finish.
Food Pairing: It tends to pair well with richly sauced dishes such as Steak (or even Fish) in a Red wine sauce or with casseroles, as well as roasted veggies.
