Description/ Tasting NotesMedium to deep garnet-purple colour, with scent of lovely ripe plum and crushed red currants, fresh bay leaf and raspberry. Medium-bodied on the palate, firm and grainy with great freshness cutting through the earthy layers and finishes long.
Winery Info/ Brand
400 years of history and 5 families have shaped the property, its wines and its values. From the Fieuzal family to the Quinn family, passing by Erik Bocké and Gérard Gribelin, each has touched Fieuzal with their vision. One virtue unites them all: respect for the earth upon which Fieuzal is utterly dependent.
Never has the land itself been forgotten or mistreated; the new buildings seem to perfectly reflect the elegant restraint and artistic eye of Brenda and Lochlann Quinn, Fieuzal’s owners since 2001.
Region Info/ Origin
Pessac-Léognan is a wine growing area and Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, in the northern part of the Graves region of Bordeaux. Unlike most Bordeaux appellations, Pessac-Léognan is recognised for both red and (dry) white wine, although red wine is still predominant. It includes the only red-wine producer outside the Haut-Médoc classified in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, the premier cru Château Haut-Brion, and also all of the châteaux listed in the 1953/59 classification of Graves. These classed growths account for a third of the wine produced in Pessac-Léognan.
