This former Carthusian monastery retains something of its religious past. Beautifully-proportioned, Château Fombrauge has been a wine estate since the 16th century. Since its acquisition by Bernard Magrez, it has hosted countless concerts and musicians-in-residence and the long halls regularly echo to the sound of the most famous Stradivarius. The perfectly-aligned vine rows stretch to the horizon like strings patiently waiting to vibrate under the vineyard workers' hands. This synergy between man and nature led to the creation of one of the oldest grands crus classés in Saint-Emilion: Château Fombrauge. This heritage and the wine's unique flavour continue to be perpetuated.
