Château de Fieuzal Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The latter wine possesses plenty of super-ripe red and black fruits as well as hints of graphite, crushed rocks and white flowers. There is elegant minerality and a medium-bodied palate, but copious tannins kick in in the finish. Five to seven years of cellaring will be essential for this structured, masculine effort...90-92" WA 5/11

A bit young, this wine could age for another 3 or 4 years easily, but still ok to drink now. As tested (basically not decanted) the wine had tight nose of spice, vanilla, leather, dirt, mandarin orange. On the attack smoke, stone (mineral?), bitter leather on top of dry dark red and black fruit. Mid-palate featured stone, smoke, graphite, with drying tannins. Slightly bitter in the finish. Impressive wine worth waiting for a few more years. Make sure to decant it for a while.

Deze witte wijn is gemaakt van een combinatie van Sémillion, Sauvignon Blanc en Muscadelle. De laatste druif wordt weinig verbouwd op het domein en wordt ook niet in elke jaargang verwerkt. Het is een mooie droge, verfijnde wijn die begint met een erg frisse neus. Het rijpe fruit overheerst maar is mooi in balans met de vanille en het hout. De wijn is mooi okergeel en kraakhelder in het glas. In de mond wordt de fruitsmaak versterkt en verfijnder weergegeven, dit is het moment dat de complexiteit van de wijn tot je door begint te dringen. Pas bij de lange, zoete, minerale afdronk weet je het zeker; Dit is weer zo’n fantastische, verfijnde witte wijn uit de Bordeaux! De Supersnobs zijn gek op dit spul! 92/100 Supersnobs.nl

Dirty like a Las Vegas stripper! Tons of minerals, tobacco, sweat, cherries and a hint of mint chocolate on the nose. Plush soft fruits, cigar box (cedar) on the palate and a very quick and smooth finish. 89-90 pts.

reveals a rustic red brown ruby color and still a fairly dark hue for being 14 years old, aromas filled with dried red fruits, some funky old earth, cedar and barnyard smells with a little hint of mint. On the palate, softer red fruits, a little vegetal, beets, and a wonderful balance of tannins and acidity with not that long of a complex finish but beautiful and intriguing wine

Tasted February 2008: Expensive but superb wine with a top-notch bouquet (distinctive elder fruit and plums) and a slightly earthy, spicy taste and a delicious, dry and still oak-driven aftertaste. A classic Pessac-Léognan, ripe but not yet in decline, perfect with food. Will be good until 2012 (and possibly longer). Not for those who love blockbuster wines from a single grape variety.
