Tasting Notes

"Classy and elegant white Bordeaux. Very aromatic nose - lifted passionfruit notes with a touch of oak toast that adds spice and depth. Long finish, with lovely refreshing acidity." Xenia Irwin MW, Waitrose Partner & Wine Buyer

"The fragrance of freshly peeled grapefruit, lemon rind, green apple, lime and vanilla pop when the wine is poured. Bright, zesty and energetic on the palate, the fruit is sweet, ripe and pure in the finish." Wine Cellar Insider

Château de Fieuzal

The Château de Fieuzal estate is officially classified as one of the great Grand Cru Classé de Graves vineyards. Named after the Fieuzal family who owned the vineyard until 1851.

Château de Fieuzal is named after one of the nineteenth-century owners and after a couple of changes of ownership, it was bought by Lochlann Quinn, the chairman of Allied Irish Banks, in 2001. The 39-hectare vineyard has a terroir of sand and gravel soils and is planted to red and white grape varietals.

For the red wines, the vineyard is planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc and 2.5% Petit Verdot. The whites are an even mix of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon. Chateau de Fieuzal completed a multi-million Euro renovation of the estate in 2012 and the wine making facilities have been completely modernised. The wines are aged in 50% new, French oak barrels for between 16 to 24 months, depending on the varietals and the style of the vintage.

Since Hubert de Bouard of Chateau Angelus in St. Emilion began consulting the estate, the wines have been showing steady improvement. Production is on average, 8,000 cases of red wine and 3,000 cases of white wine per vintage.
