The wine comes from a 10 ha plot and consists of 50% Semillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is barrel-fermented, there is no malo and it spends up to 18 months in 50% new oak.
The 2008 tasted here.
1990 Château de Fieuzal
The nose is mature and rich with notes of lanolin, dry honey, almond paste, hay and some smoke. Dense, in a good way. A fine maturity. Round and accessible. Very, very good.
The taste feels younger than the nose with ripe yellow fruit, a fine acidity and lots of body. Notes of orange peel, grass, almond cookies and oilcloth. A long, distinctive finish. This is good. Should go on on this level for another 5+ years.
