Critical Acclaim

"A big, fruity wine that manages to balance its ripe tropical-fruit flavors with notes of spice and grapefruit. It has weight and is still settling down. Concentrated and intense.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points "
94 Points

"Juicy, with bright blueberry, raspberry and blackberry all rolled together, layered with spice and graphite on the finish. Nice range and focus.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
92 Points

"Fully saturated purple-ruby. Grapey, showy, superripe aromas of smoky plum, quinine and aromatic herbs. Sweet and creamy on the palate, with lively acidity lifting the rich ripe black fruit and flint flavors. This big, rich wine manages to avoid heaviness thanks to its brisk acidity and attractive peppery tannins, which give it considerable zing. A superb Fieuzal in the making.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
92 Points

"With a supple, soft, lush texture, moderate weight and plenty of sweet strawberry, black cherry and darker fruit as well as a distinctive herbal note, the well-made 2011 De Fieuzal is already seductive. It should drink nicely during its first decade of life.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points"
91 Points

"Aromas of blackberries and spices with dark chocolate too. Medium to full body, with fresh acidity and a long clean finish. Racy tannins. A touch more in the mid-palate would be better.
Barrel Sample: 89-90 Points"
90 Points
