Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
A powerful wine that is full of dark black fruits as well as hints of dark chocolate. The tannins and the clear black currant are two fine elements of a wine that will have density and richness as it develops.
Barrel Sample: 94-96
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black in color, the 2020 de Fieuzal sashays out of the glass with scents of black cherry compote, blackcurrant pastilles and baked plums, plus hints of violets, dark chocolate, powdered cinnamon and dried mint. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of juicy black fruits, framed by wonderfully velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on an uplifting mineral note.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
JS 94
James Suckling
A ripe, savory red with blackberry, blueberry, mushroom and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and dense with layers of fruit and tannins.
Barrel Sample: 93-94
D 94
Decanter
Ruby red, plenty of red fruit aromatics also, savoury redcurrant and raspberry, not as concentrated as some, this has sinew and juice, a little austere, but I like the floral aromatics as it opens. A fairly subdued Fieuzal, structured with excellent juicy tension but not generous at this point. Tasted twice. 14 months ageing.
Barrel Sample: 94
JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
Starting off slightly earthy, the 2020 Château De Fieuzal opens up nicely with time in the glass, developing more scorched earth, graphite, and currant and darker berry-like fruits. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, and lively on the palate, it has the purity and freshness that seem prevalent in all the top wines in this vintage, terrific mid-palate depth, and ripe, polished tannins. I was able to taste this wine on multiple occasions, and it was consistently outstanding.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

Chateau de Fieuzal, France
Located in the heart of the Graves, the cradle of Bordeaux winemaking, Chateau de Fieuzal takes its name from the family to which it belonged until 1851. This Graves great growth, now owned by Brenda and Lochlann Quinn, is famous for its elegant white wines and opulent red wines.

Great care is taken to make the most of Chateau de Fieuzal's terrior in order to produce excellent wines as well as to protect the remarkably diverse natual environment. In keeping with demanding French standards of luxury craftsmanship, all work in the vinyeard and cellar is done both meticulously and traditionally. The vines are looked after on an individual basis and closely followed in order to obtain fruit that reflects the excellence of this unique terroir.

Pessac-Leognan Wine

Bordeaux, France

Recognized for its superior reds as well as whites, Pessac-Léognan on the Left Bank claims classified growths for both—making it quite unique in comparison to its neighboring Médoc properties.

Pessac’s Chateau Haut-Brion, the only first growth located outside of the Médoc, is said to have been the first to conceptualize fine red wine in Bordeaux back in the late 1600s. The estate, along with its high-esteemed neighbors, La Mission Haut-Brion, Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pique-Caillou and Chateau Pape-Clément are today all but enveloped by the city of Bordeaux. The rest of the vineyards of Pessac-Léognan are in clearings of heavily forested area or abutting dense suburbs.

Arid sand and gravel on top of clay and limestone make the area unique and conducive to growing Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc as well as the grapes in the usual Left Bank red recipe: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and miniscule percentages of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The best reds will show great force and finesse with inky blue and black fruit, mushroom, forest, tobacco, iodine and a smooth and intriguing texture.

Its best whites show complexity, longevity and no lack of exotic twists on citrus, tropical and stone fruit with pronounced floral and spice characteristics.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
