Winemakers Note

The estate “ Fons Brogiera : a spring surrounded by heather”. This was the first mention of the name Fombrauge which, for 6 centuries now, has epitomised the elegance of the Grand Cru Classé wines of Saint Emilion. From the Canolle family in the 15th century to Bernard Magrez today, six families have succeeded each other in owning and running Château Fombrauge, providing the estate, which harvested its first grapes in 1599. With a vineyard covering 58.60 hectares (nearly 145 acres), this unusually large surface area for Saint-Emilion brings a unique typicity to its terroir –a typicity in diversity. The diversity of its soils and the vineyard’s wide range of exposures give the wine of Fombrauge its complexity and identity. To ensure the full expression of the estate’s rich terroir, Bernard Magrez, the owner since 1999, today combines ancestral savoir-faire with precision viticulture. 2021 Growing season Autumn - Mild & wet Winter - Warm & wet Spring - Chilly & rainy with some frost Summer - Chilly & wet Vineyard management - Technical itineraries adjusted to each parcel and put at the service of the Fombrauge terroir. - Use of precision viticultural techniques (Greenseeker, drone, robotics) in order to optimise the farm’s performance in terms of product quality and the environment.
