Château de Fieuzal is located in the Pessac-Léognan appellation of Graves, Bordeaux. It was awarded Graves Grand Cru Classé status for its red wines in 1959 as part of the Graves classification.

Château de Fieuzal produces a grand vin rouge and a grand vin blanc; as well as a second wine, L’Abeille de Fieuzal, in both a red and white expression.

In the winery, red grapes are fermented in both stainless steel and barrel, before being aged in French oak – the grand vin rouge, which is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon alongside Merlot and Cabernet Franc – is aged between 16-24 months depending on vintage; L’Abeille de Fieuzal spends up to a year in barrel.

The Château de Fieuzal grand vin blanc, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, is aged in three separate lots; a third in new French oak barrels, a third in older barrels and a third in stainless steel vats. These separate lots are then blended and this cuvée spends a few months in concrete vats before it is bottled and released.

L’Abeille de Fieuzal blanc is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle and is made in an easy drinking and more approachable style.

Taste: The 2013 De Fieuzal has an open, quite sensual bouquet with scents of black cherry, wild strawberry and wet stone, an attractive floral aspect developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, succulent in the mouth with good acidity, polished with a smooth, harmonious finish. This is commendable for the vintage, even if it is just missing a little personality.
