With one of the highest percentages of Semillon in Pessac-Léognan, this has classic candle wax and green herb notes. Creamy, yet crunchy, it has zesty, grapefruity acidity and subtle oak integration. Drinking range: 2017 - 2026 Rating: 91 Tim Atkin MW, (May 2016)

Rather dull nose - sweet and powdery. Simple fruit. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Apr 2016)

The vineyard is 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon. The juice is fermented in barriques, using 30% new oak. A very rich and polished fruit character on the nose, creamed white peach sorbet with a peppery, leafy lift bolstered by a little smoky oak. The palate has a real presence of fruit, quite chalky in style, but substantial, fresh and lively, with mango, apricot and yellow peach complexity. This is mixed within a fleshy substance backed by a bright, vibrant acidity. A fine composure here, rather low-key acidity compared to some, but it is there. Lovely potential. Rating: 16.5-17.5/20 Chris Kissack, (Apr 2016)

Château de Fieuzal

Chateau de Fieuzal is named in honour of the family that owned it at the start of the nineteenth century. After that, the Bordeaux wine property was owned by the Griffon family. The Griffon’s, who were lucky to have connections to Pope Léon XIII in Bordeaux, were able to fill the Vatican’s cellars with their wines from Pessac Leognan. de Fieuzal was purchased by the Ricard family. The Ricard’s owned multiple Bordeaux wine estates including Domaine de Chevalier and Malartic-Lagravière. Today, Chateau de Fieuzal is owned by Lochlann Quinn, the chairman of Allied Irish Banks.

The Bordeaux wine vineyards are planted on sand and gravel soils. The 39 hectare vineyard is planted to red and white grape varietals. For the reds, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc and 2.5% Petit Verdot. The white grapes are planted to 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon.
