This is one of the better, more supple Fombrauge wines to date, with a better integration of toasty oak than I have usually seen at this stage of this wine’s development. The grapes were picked late, with the harvest finishing on October 22, and that has given the wine wonderful ripeness and plenty of chocolaty espresso notes intermixed with incense, black cherries and black currants. The oak is subtle, and the wine full-bodied, attractive, deep, round and generous. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. ||This significant estate in St.-Emilion, with one of the biggest, if not the largest, vineyards in Bordeaux, has produced a wine composed of 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.

This has a very opulent bouquet, exotic with figs and dates all wrapped up in a layer of puppy fat. The palate is full-bodied but showing more control and poise than at the Circle de Rive Droite tasting in London. Bold, saturated tannins, satin smooth towards the finish that avoids blowsiness. Very fine. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Very friendly young red, with bright dark fruits and flowers on the nose and palate. Full and silky, with a long finish. jamessuckling.com

Dark and winey, with layers of black currant, fig paste and graphite pushed by slightly chewy-textured structure. Shows a lot of muscle now, with plenty of flesh on the finish. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Very dark and rich but with real spine. Drying sandpapery tannins on the finish. A little greenness. jancisrobinson.com

Dense, rich extract but fresh and balanced. Full-bodied, harmonious with fine, ripe tannins and good length. Drink 2016-2026. James Lawther, decanter.com

Minerals, coffee, cassis and spice aromas open to a medium bodied wine, elegant textures and a dark berry, cassis and fennel finish that was slightly marred by a hint of tartness. winecellarinsider.com
