The balance of an intense and smooth red Grand Vin from Pessac-Léognan
Following contrasting climatic conditions, the 2018 has been released, signaling a great vintage for Château de Fieuzal, Grand Cru Classé de Graves, located south of Bordeaux, on the left bank.
At Château de Fieuzal, the red grape harvest began on September 21st and ended on October 12th. The berries were harvested at the perfect level of ripeness, offering strong expressions of each grape variety.
Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%), the Château de Fieuzal red 2018 showcases the class and signature flavours of this Pessac-Léognan grand cru.
At the tasting, the Château de Fieuzal red 2018 displays a deep red colour, testifying to the great concentration of anthocyanins in the fruit. Still quite subtle on the nose, the palate is superb, marked by a dense and suave texture and underlined by a great freshness. The 2018 certainly promises to be a great vintage at Château de Fieuzal.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 de Fieuzal rocks up with gregarious scents of baked plums, stewed cherries and dried mulberries plus suggestions of Chinese five spice, unsmoked cigars and sautéed herbs. The rich, full-bodied palate has loads of exotic spice and raisin cake layers with a firm, chewy frame, finishing just a little hard.
