Château de Fieuzal is a Bordeaux wine from the Pessac-Léognan appellation, ranked among the Premiers Crus for red wine in the Classification of Graves wine of 1953 and 1959. The winery and vineyards are located south of the city of Bordeaux, in the commune of Léognan.
An old estate, it was once the property of the La Rochefoucauld family, which came to prominence for its wine under the management of the Swede Erik Bocké whose wife inherited the estate after World War II Château de Fieuzal was acquired by Lochlann Quinn in 2001.
The vineyard area consists of 48 hectares, 39 hectares of red vines consisting of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon with 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc and 2.5% Petit Verdot, and 9 hectares of white with equal amounts of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc Of the Grand vin Château de Fieuzal and the second wine L'Abeille de Fieuzal there is typically a total annual production of 13,000 cases of red wine and 4,000 of dry white.
Aromas of lead pencil, tobacco leaf, liquorice, and crème de cassis are offered in an outstanding, medium to full-bodied, concentrated style. There is tremendous purity as well as flavour dimension. This opaque ruby/purple-coloured offering is one of the finest de Fieuzals produced over the last decade. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 146, April 2003.
