There is something curously tight about this - a medicinal middle, but the actual balance is good, it has got some freshness, and a curious spice too. the oddness may be cooperage, and the wine feels like it will get there, and be rather a good fuller style of Fieuzal. Rating: 89-91 L&S (Apr 2016)

The 2015 de Fieuzal has an earthy and rather herbal bouquet that could be from a cooler vintage than this. The palate is bitter and raw, very green with a vegetal finish. This performed brilliantly from barrel but now tasted blind, it seems to vindicate the reservations I expressed just after bottling. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

The 2015 De Fieuzal is powerful and a bit burly but certainly not lacking in personality. Smoke, grilled herbs, tobacco, cedar, dried cherry and smoke add nuance to this attractive, midweight wine. All things considered, the 2015 shows quite well today. Drink it over the next few years. Drinking range: 2018 - 2028 Rating: 89 Antonio Galloni, (Feb 2018)

Light to mid rather dull crimson. Light leafy nose. Very sweet palate entry. Lacks a little freshness. Workmanlike. Drinking range: 2023 - 2032 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (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.
