Average critic rating : 87.0 points



The 2015 Prelude de Fombrauge shows just how delicious entry-level wines can be in this vintage. Rich, deep and plummy, the 2015 offers terrific depth in a mid-weight style that is ideal for near-term drinking. Dark red cherry, mocha, spice and new leather add the closing shades of nuance. The blend is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com



The 2015 Prélude de Fombrauge (the new name for the deuxième vin) is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc picked between September 24 until October 15. Matured in oak barrel and cement tank, it has a simple but clean and crisp, flinty bouquet that might need 2-3 years in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with quite robust tannin, assertive in the mouth; to compare it with the 2015 Les Pensées de La Tour Carnet for a moment, it does not quite have the same finesse and elegance on the finish, this feels a little gritty in the mouth.
