Chateau de Fieuzal is named after the first family to own it, though it was soon acquired by the Griffon family who used their relationship with Pope Leon XIII to fill the cellars of the Vatican with wine from the de Fieuzal estate.
Lochlann Quinn, who is the chairman of the Allied Irish Banks is the current owner of the estate. His investment in the property included the complete renovation of the wine making facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and a new set of vats for vinification.
The estate of Chateau de Fieuzal incudes 39 hectares of vineyards, averaging 35 years old including some of the Petit Verdot vines which were planted in 1908! The red varietals are planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc and 2.5% Petit Verdot, and the white varietals are planted evenly between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
Very deep colour here. Lovely nose again, very calm here quite lively black berry fruit. This is layed. Finishes very gently, the structure is there but well covered. This is a knockout best Fieuzal ever.
Light to mid rather dull crimson. Light leafy nose. Very sweet palate entry. Lacks a little freshness. Workmanlike.
The 2015 de Fieuzal has a very seductive bouquet, almost Saint Emilion in style (perhaps the hand of consultant Hubert de Boüard at play?). I mean that in a positive sense: it is extremely pure and sensual, an aromatic femme fatale. The palate is ripe and generous on the entry, but simultaneously poised and minerally, almost edgy towards the sustained and focused finish. There is wonderful freshness and vitality here, yet another really quite stupendous Pessac-Léognan that is going to be a joy to drink over the next 20-25 years.
High-toned kirsch aromas. Very ambitious. Dark, tight-knit fruits with good hold from the charcoal and graphite tannins. Impact favoured over restraint, but a well constructed, high-quality wine. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 60% new oak.
