Château Fombrauge, Grand Cru Classé de Saint Emilion
This former monastery has retained a certain sacred charm from its religious past. Steadily built up over the centuries, the origins of the Château Fombrauge vineyard date back to the 16th century. Since it was acquired by Bernard Magrez, the Château’s long corridors have echoed with melodies played with Stradivarius’ finest, in concerts and by musicians in residence. All around, the straight rows of vines stretch out as far as the eye can see like strings patiently waiting to be plucked by the winegrower’s hand. From this harmony between man and earth, one of the oldest Saint-Émilion Grands Crus perpetuates its ancestral flavours - Château Fombrauge. You can choose between the spring suite with its stately elegance and a period suite with the charm of a bygone era, for a taste of unprecedented luxury. Its inviting grounds and formal French garden are perfect for a contemplative stroll.
Just a few kilometres from St Emilion, Fombrauge, which became a Grand Cru Classé with the 2012 vintage, is one of the vineyard’s most extensive properties.*
