2014 started very early after a mild and very wet winter, a rainy spring, and flowering towards the end of May. May and June were fairly dry, then the ‘veraison’ (when the grapes change colour) took place during a rather stormy summer period. Meticulous work was carried out in the vineyard and rewarded by a dry end of the summer, which proved very beneficial for this 2014 vintage.
The wines of Château de Fieuzal have a distinct allure that is inseparable from the place from which they are grown. Every bottle has unique energy, bringing to life every aspect of the complex terroir in an intense but precise balance. Fieuzal has the intriguing ability to hold one’s attention, by combining flavour and feeling; the senses and the sensual.
The bouquet is pure and elegant, with a deep violet colour and bright reflections. There are subtle notes of cherry, raspberry and forest fruits. The mouthfeel is delicate and silky with pleasant tannins and tension on the finish.
