In honour of its new ranking as a Grand Cru of Saint-Émilion, Château Fombrauge has launched five Stradivarius cases containing a 2008 Magnum. The case exterior, covered with a layer of oak leaf plating, as well as its 23-karat gold-plated pieces, bring a wealth of value to the cases. The inside is lined with vintage velvet, used in the past to make costumes for the Venice Carnival.
The Saint-Émilion Grand Cru is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Floral, smooth and delicate, it has a reputation for being a remarkable wine and a delight for the senses with duck, lamb or veal.
The five cases are numbered and sell for € 9,900 each at the Château Fombrauge.
About the Château Fombrauge: This French domain was built after the Hundred Years War and its vineyard was first spoken about in the 1600s. Château Fombrauge’s wines began to be introduced in many European countries in the XVII Century.
