Fieuzal is named after the family who owned the property up to 1851, while the original 16th century name of the estate was Gardères.  After the Fieuzal family sold the estate, it was split in two and the halves were named Château de Fieuzal and Château Haut-Gardère.  It wasn’t until 1995 that the two estates were finally reunited to form the current Fieuzal vineyards, which now cover some 75 hectares.  The estate, which is in the Pessac-Léognan appellation of Graves, sits on one of the best gently sloping, gravel-outcrops in the area – long admired for its excellent drainage and heat diffusing properties.
Chateau de Fieuzal 2010 is a generous, rich wine.  Notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and violet dominates the aromas, but there are also hints of tobacco and spices with a slight touch of pepper.  It is both supple and distinguished on the palate, with perfectly precise acidity that provides a classic balance to the wine’s fruit flavours.  This wine has the capacity to evolve into something truly special.
