Decanter: 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. 92 Points
The Wine Advocate - "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. Barrel Sample: 92-94 pts"
Wine Spectator - "Slightly higher pitched than most of its peers, with up-front damson plum and violet notes followed by cherry and red licorice flavors. The finish is tight but remains long. Should unwind with the élevage. Barrel Sample: 89-92 pts"
Located in the heart of the Graves, the cradle of Bordeaux winemaking, Chateau de Fieuzal takes its name from the family to which it belonged until 1851. This Graves great growth, now owned by Brenda and Lochlann Quinn, is famous for its elegant white wines and opulent red wines.
Great care is taken to make the most of Chateau de Fieuzal's terrior in order to produce excellent wines as well as to protect the remarkably diverse natual environment. In keeping with demanding French standards of luxury craftsmanship, all work in the vinyeard and cellar is done both meticulously and traditionally. The vines are looked after on an individual basis and closely followed in order to obtain fruit that reflects the excellence of this unique terroir.
