Magrez Fombrauge Saint-Emilion 2017

Red Bordeaux tone. The smell of violets was so strong that it seemed curious to me.The Saint-Emilion tasted like wild berries.
The best one to enjoy it with a good "Serrano ham".
A special red wine for someone just as special .

Fombrauge Saint-Emilion 2017

All of my friends were delighted about this wine.
This red one was lighter that I had expected. Fantastic berry aromas. I enjoyed it quite long after the last sip.
I recommend to taste it with prosciutto.

A blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, this 2013 vintage, fully fermented in barrels, is very tannic. It offers a beautiful structure.
Drink or keep: 2016-2019
PAIRING: Pigeon fillet, red wine sauce
