Très ancien cru de Léognan, le Château de Fieuzal compte parmi les fleurons de cette grande région viticole des Graves, berceau du vignoble girondin.
Loads of ripe fruit are present in this wine, but I was surprised by what appeared to be a lack of complexity and nuance. It is certainly chunky, has a dense ruby/purple color and the concentration is adequate. The wine showed blue, red and black fruits, spice, and earth, but is not showing the nuances and complexity I would have expected. Drink it over the next 15 years.
A fine and fresh wine with bright fruit and flowers, a medium body and an earthy, spicy finish. Minerally and crisp. Slightly lacks a mid-palate. Drink or hold.
Rather dark in profile, with pastis-soaked black currant and blackberry fruit at the core, studded with warm fruitcake and ganache notes. The bramble-edged finish lets the slightly exotic display of fruit maintain the upper hand. Best from 2016 through 2022. 6,500 cases made.
Ripe, even slightly sweet fruit, good open flavours, more charm than depth.
Couleur sombre et pourpre. Nez fruité et vanillé. Bouche juteuse, savoureuse, de corps normal, accompagnée d’un bel éclat fruité en finale. Persistance normale.
