The estate goes back to the 16th century, which makes it one of the oldest châteaux in the Saint Emilion region. The beautiful 17th century old country manor was originally the cloister of the town’s Carthusian Monastery. Owned by Jacquesde Canolle in 1466, the estate later belonged to the Dumas de Fombrauge family, who implemented the first quality winemaking in the domain in the 18th century.
"Owned by Bernard Magrez, this modern, smooth wine has impressive layers of new wood, mint aromas, and with a tough, solid core." 92 points, Wine Enthusiast
"One of the two stars of Bernard Magrez’s St.-Emilion empire (the other being the luxury cuvee of Magrez-Fombrauge), the 2006 Fombrauge is a soft, round, spicy effort displaying plenty of oak, earth, and ripe red currant and black cherry fruit." 90 points, Robert Parker
