Château de Fieuzal Pessac Leognan 2005

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The fieuzal wines are rich and opulent, in the wake of the great wines with ageing potential which are produced on the estate. The tannins of the very full and powerful reds quickly acquire a velvety structure, wich enhance a complex bouquet with smoked notes of black fruits and wood-land.

Wine Enthusiast91-93 Barrel sample. Lovely, delicious sweet fruit leads a ripe and generous wine, showing deliciously black, almost raisiny flavors. There's a pile of richness, with acidity acting as a seasoning.

Wine AdvocateSmoke, 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.

Wine SpectatorEarthy and meaty on the nose, with lots of ripe fruit. Full-bodied, soft and round. There's loads of Pessac character, with hints of vanilla and coffee. A decadent style. Best after 2011.
