Château Fombrauge

45 minutes from Bordeaux
HISTORY

Château Fombrauge name derives from “Fons Brogiera”, meaning, “source surrounded by heather and bushes”. Vineyards have been planted in the valuable soils of this former Carthusian monastery - Saint-Émilion’s largest Grand Cru Classé - since 1466. In 1867, the estate’s voluptuous wine was awarded gold at the World Fair in Paris. When acquired by Bernard Magrez in 1999, a complete restoration was undertaken to preserve its period style. The generous single floor mansion slumbers down a deep gravel drive, flanked by stately topiary gardens. A long terrace overlooks 300 year-old tulip trees and a seemingly infinite expanse of vines, which stretch out over 58 hectares.

One of the five cellars, brimming with 900 barrels of resting wine, features bottles from 1871, while another is presided over by a large antique clock. Bernard Magrez’s passion for collecting antique timepieces is revealed in cabinets of silver timepieces in the tasting salon and in the grounds, in the veins of a sundial dating to 1679, ordered by the previous owner of the estate, Jacques de Canolle.
