40% Cabernet Sauvignon; 50% Merlot; 10% Petit Verdot.

The large 70-hectare vineyard of Chateau de Fieuzal is planted for red and white wine grapes. 60 hectares of vines are planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc for the red wine grapes. This is a change in the vineyard showing an increase in the Merlot and Petit Verdot and a decrease in the Cabernet Sauvignon. 10 hectares of vines are used for the white Bordeaux wine grape varietals which are planted to an even mix of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon.

Yohan Castaing - Wine Advocate: 94-96/100
The 2023 Fieuzal reveals a bright, perfumed bouquet of mulberries and cherries mingled with floral accents of violets, lilac and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, it’s pure and seamless, with a fleshy core of fruit, bright acids and powdery, ultra-refined tannins, concluding with a mineral, penetrating finish. This blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot stands out in this challenging vintage for gravelly, sandy terroirs. Under the adept guidance of Stephen Carrier, the estate—positioned on the border of the Pessac-Léognan appellation—has hit new heights in recent years.

James Suckling: 93-94/100
Very impressive freshness and focus here. Bright and succulent, al-dente fruit right upfront and continuing through the whole length of the wine. Notes of forest floor, sea shell and iodine. Medium body. It has bright acidity that adds tension and a lot of energy. Fine tannins, already beautifully integrated.

Jane Anson: 93/100
Vibrant plum in colour, with juice, density and grip, another sign of how they are evolving the structure and architecture of this wine, giving it nuance without sacrificing the complexity. Cocoa bean, sweet berry, fruits, this is delicious.
