Château Feytit Clinet

France, Bordeaux

The Chasseuil family finally wrestled control of Feytit Clinet from their tenants in time for the mythical 2000 vintage. Jeremy Chasseuil's hand shows in wines that get better with every passing vintage, truly showing the potential of the estate, where once the wines were rather run of the mill. It is a tiny property, set right in the heart of Pomerol and planted with 90% Merlot. Despite the name, and the statement "mis en bouteille au chateau" on the label, there is no château, just a small well-equipped chais.
