Château-de-Fieuzal Pessac Leognan 2015
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 de Fieuzal has a very seductive bouquet, almost Saint Emilion in style (perhaps the hand of consultant Hubert de Boüard at play?). I mean that in a positive sense: it is extremely pure and sensual, an aromatic femme fatale. The palate is ripe and generous on the entry, but simultaneously poised and minerally, almost edgy towards the sustained and focused finish. There is wonderful freshness and vitality here, yet another really quite stupendous Pessac-Léognan that is going to be a joy to drink over the next 20-25 years.
Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Smooth and concentrated, this wine is rich while keeping a great sense of freshness. It has a dark power that is restrained by the fine acidity and perfumed black fruits.
Wine SpectatorSlightly higher pitched than most of its peers, with up-front damson plum and violet notes followed by cherry and red licorice flavors. The finish is tight but remains long. Should unwind with the élevage. (Barrel Tasting)
