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)

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 - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2016)
Rating: 90 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Apr 2016)
A very chalky, perfumed, crushed limestone character on the nose, with notes of sweetpea perfume. The palate is fresh, poised, very supple, with a plush and yet elegant fruit character. The tannins have a firm but ripe substance to them, and the fruit character while broad and confident has a good definition for Fieuzal, although there is a little touch of the almost inevitable baked-plum pie to it. Very fine substance on the finish though, rich, with ripe grip, A substantial wine, broad, with a rather muscular grip in the finish. Rating: 16-17/20 Chris Kissack, www.thewinedoctor.com (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.
