The vineyard is located in the commune of Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes in the Saint-Émilion (Bordeaux). It was founded in 1679 and is one of the oldest in the area. It is named after an early owner called Dumas de Fombrauge. In 1999, the estate was bought by Bernard Magrez and, with the advice of Michel Rolland, the vine stock was converted (stock of Merlot increased, Cabernet Sauvignon eliminated). The farm was first classified as "Grand Cru Classé" in 2012. The vineyards cover 60 hectares. The long-lasting red wine is made from Merlot (90%), Cabernet Franc (8%) and Cot (2%) and aged for 16 to 18 months in 50% new . The second wine is called "Le Cadran de Fombrauge". Under the name "Château Magrez Fombrauge" a white wine is also produced from Sémillon (40%), Sauvignon Blanc (30%) and Sauvignon Gris (30%).
