A Pessac-Léognan red wine with a smooth structure
Château de Fieuzal is a Grand Cru Classé de Graves produced in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Around 30 years old, the vineyard of 68 hectares is planted on rolling outcrops made of fine soils and covered with thousand-year-old gravel. The blend of the 2015 vintage is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
With its intense blood red color and purple reflections, the Château de Fieuzal 2015 reveals complex aromas of red fruits and black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry). There are then expressive fragrances of spices and graphite. In the mouth, the attack is dense and offers tannins that combine finesse and elegance. This wine, which reveals a silky structure, presents a wonderful tension during a long finish.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 De Fieuzal is scented of lovely ripe plums and crushed red currants with touches of forest floor and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, firm and grainy with great freshness cutting through the earthy layers, it finishes long.
