A Premier Cru in the 1953 Classification of Graves wine, this venerable estate sits south of the city of Bordeaux, in the commune of Léognan, with 39 hectares of red vines consisting mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This is a decadent style, with aromas and flavors of earth, smoked meat, figs and ripe dark fruits, with a steely underpinning.
Robert Parker, 90 Points (April, 2008): The finest Fieuzal in many years. Smoke, black truffles, crushed rock, and leafy notes combined with earth, fresh mushrooms, and cassis result in a complex set of aromatics for the dark ruby/purple-colored 2005 Fieuzal. Medium-bodied with crisp acidity and high tannin, this serious wine is closed, but promising. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027.
