TheThe 2017 Feytit-Clinet has quite a complex bouquet with red berry fruit, a touch of seaweed and smoke. It is not as powerful as the previous two vintages although it displays impressive focus. The palate is very refined on the entry, silky smooth in texture (as usual) with a fine bead of acidity. It just needs to manifest more precision towards the finish but that will hopefully develop during its barrel maturation. I have been a big supporter of Jeremy Chasseuil’s often over-looked Pomerol and though, this is not from his top-drawer, it still shows potential. I am prudent with my assessment for now.

Here she has tended towards a long harvest period, eschewing the notion of ‘optimal’ maturity, believing that picking across the ripeness spectrum results in a more interesting wine. This is illustrated by the start date for the harvest, beginning with the Merlot on September 6th, almost two weeks before she began picking on her St Emilion vineyards, while she finished here on October 2nd, with the last of the Cabernet Franc, just one day before she finished in St Emilion. The blend is, as always, 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has a very fresh nose, of iron filings and black plum, showing a very sweet and primary character. The palate follows up with a charming substance, fresh and cool, with a medium body, wrapped in subtle cigar, chalk and cinnamon-sugar oak. It feels ripe and supple, with broad tannins, fresh and grippy. The fruit here seems to stand up to the oak better than Hélène’s wines from St Emilion. This has good potential. The élevage will be in 100% new oak, for 18 months. Rating: 91-93 Chris Kissack, www.thewinedoctor.com(Apr 2018)
