- Purchased by Bernard Margrez (la Tour Carnet, Pape Clement) in 1999, Chateau Fombrauge may well be the largest estate in St. Emilion with nearly 150 acres under vine and quite possibly one of the oldest estates to gain international fame; the Dumas family held ownership in the 17th century and sold their wines in England, Holland and Germany. Definitive and classic.
