Built with regularity and sobriety, the château Fombrauge kept a sacred look due to its religious past as a Carthusian monastery. Its vineyard grows since the XVIth century. Its history is linked to 3 families: the Canolle, the Dumas, and the Taffard who created and developped the domaine. The Cru get the gold medal during Paris World's Fair of 1867.
When Bernard Magrez bought Fombrauge in 1999, new horizons for the estate-grow came to life: he brought the rigor of his knowledge to the quality of the product.
In septembre 2012, the castle became grand cru classé saint-Emilion, honoring the real and basic job for the enhancement of the vineyard.

The château Fombrauge, now, opens the door of its prestigious and private rooms.
