"A vivid and bright red with plum and spice plus hints of cedar and sandalwood. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. The plush tannins to this give it weight and opulence." - James Suckling 

"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Fombrauge offers up aromas of baked berries, dried mulberries and preserved plums with touches of Indian spices and game. Medium to full-bodied with loads of expressive fruit, it has firm, grainy tannins and finishes with a lively lift." - Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Fombrauge is very pretty. Succulent red cherry, mint and rose petal give the wine an attractive upper register and a good deal of freshness to balance the overt fruit. Powerful and rich, the 2015 has quite a bit to offer. Raspberry jam, mocha, espresso, rose petal and spice add the closing shades of nuance. Readers should expect a fairly bold style - as is the case with all of Bernard Magrez's wines." - Vinous

"Gently steeped plum and black currant fruit melds with a smoldering charcoal note, while hints of bay leaf, tobacco and warm cast iron lurk. Offers a rounded, energetic structure, as a loamy echo lingers at the very end. A bit fresher than previous vintages." - Wine Spectator

"Bottle in a seriously heavy bottle, the 2015 Chateau Fombrauge sports a ruby/plum color to go with lots of ripe black fruits, truffle, licorice and hints of chocolate. It's a rich, dense, almost chewy wine that has moderate tannin, plenty of stuffing, and a good finish. It should keep for two decades." - Jeb Dunnuck
