La dernière caisse
Vous connaissez peut-être l’excellence de son vin rouge, un Grand Cru Classé ? Mais Château de Fieuzal est aussi réputé pour ses vins blancs, produits sur un terroir exceptionnel.
More obviously rich than some, majoring on toasted hazelnut aromas. It has done its level best to fatten things up in a tough vintage for whites, and manages to do so extremely well, but it can't quite pull off the true minerality of the best vintages. This is well handled though, showing lovely rich citrus flavours accompanied by rosemary and cold ash, with a mouthwatering finish.
Focused, with a pretty mix of white peach, macadamia nut and yellow apple flavors harnessed by a light fennel frond hint on the finish.—J.M.
The de Fieuzal 2016 Blanc reveals subtle lime cordial, lemon juice and pomelo scents with wafts of peach blossoms and tangerine peel. Medium-bodied with a good core of vivacious citrus flavors in the mouth, it has a racy backbone and mineral-tinged finish.
