  • What the experts say...

    Puissant et riche, le 1993 libère au nez et en bouche des arômes imposants et généreux de miel, de cire, de citron et de chêne neuf et épicé. Très corsé, révélant une texture épaisse marquée par la mâche, il est long et vif en final. (...) Source : Robert Parker (1/97)

    The white Fieuzal expresses citrus aromas, buttered and brioche notes. The palate is very straight and fine, with a nice density, acacia and honey aromas.

    Information about domain Château de Fieuzal

    The good reputation of Château de Fieuzal makes it one of the jewels of the Pessac-Léognan appellation. This wine was classified Grand Cru during the Graves classification. This ancient cru was founded in the 16th century. It, then, belonged to the Gardères family, before becoming Fieuzal family’s property in the following century. The Fieuzal kept the château until 1851, when the last descendant of the name died. Today, the 75 hectare vineyard belongs to an Irish couple (since 2001), Brenda and Lochlann Quinn, both passionate about French wines. Stephen Carrier (formerly Lynch-Bages) has been managing the operations since 2007. Under the leadership of the new owners, both red and white wines have regained their lost excellence, thanks to the talented winemaker the new winery.
