The elegance and aromatic expression of a Pessac-Léognan red wine

The estate

Château de Fieuzal has been owned by Brenda and Lochlann Quinn since 2001. Originally from Ireland, they perpetuate the authentic expression of this terroir with great dynamism and passion from one vintage to another, giving the wines of Château de Fieuzal their unique signature style. The vineyard is located on a typical terroir of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, favourable conditions for the typical Bordeaux grape varieties.

The vineyard

This Graves Cru Classé watches over an exceptional vineyard of 68 hectares of red and 10 hectares of white vines. The vines are 30 years old on average and are planted on a terroir made up of fine soil covered with gravel.

The vintage

The mild and particularly wet winter gave way to a spring that was also marked by heavy rainfall until the end of May, when flowering began. Although May and June were marked by good weather conditions, the summer was characterised, with the exception of the second half of July, by numerous stormy episodes, leading to a long veraison period. A hot and dry climate set in at the end of August for 4 weeks, alternating with cool nights. The grapes harvested boasted a great quality and revealed a beautiful concentration.

The blend

Château de Fieuzal 2014 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (25%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).

Château de Fieuzal 2014: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

Dense purple colour with brilliant highlights.

Nose

The pure and elegant nose blends fragrances of raspberries, wild berries and spices with notes of macerated cherries and a subtle hint of vanilla from the ageing process.

Palate

The attack possesses a seductive delicacy and unctuousness. Silky tannins, with a beautiful persistence, the impressive palate offers a tense finish (like a dry white wine) promising a lengthy ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 De Fieuzal was following the Domaine de Chevalier Rouge and frankly that's a difficult act to follow. It certainly does not possess the same precision of fruit concentration, perhaps enduring a reticent, broody stage of its evolution. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. Here perhaps more representative of the wine, building in the mouth towards a lovely cedar-tinged finish, leaving you on a high note. Hopefully the aromatics will develop with bottle age and then it will merit a higher score.
