Mittleres Gelb, lindengrüne Nuancen darin, leuchtend. Geniales Bouquet, weisses Pfirsichfleisch, Minze, zartes Vanillin, eine parfümierte Mineralik zeigend. Schlanker Gaumen, feinpfeffrige Rasse, extrem lang. Nachdem es in Vergangenheit viele burgundisch-weisse Fieuzals gab ist das ein völlig klar ausgerichteter, grosser weisser Bordeaux der seinen Sauvignon-Blanc-Absender deutlich zeigt. Während man beim roten Fieuzal von der Vinifikation her leider die Grenzen zu stark ausgelotet hat, ist hier die Recherche ans ganz grosse Ziel gelangt. Hier hat man einen der fraglos grössten, weissen Bordeaux des Jahrganges 2014 im Glas. Bravo! Der kommt definitiv in den Gabriel-Keller. (2020 - 2038)
René Gabriel
A dry white with lots of mineral and white-pepper character as well as lightly cooked apples and lemons. Full-bodied, yet this remains agile and lively. Intense finish. Layered and structured. Little oily. Drink now or hold.
James Suckling
The Château de Fieuzal Blanc 2014 has an attractive nose: lime mixed with citrus fruit and touches of grilled walnut coming through with aeration. The palate is quite shrill on the entry with attacking lime and citrus scents. The acidity is quite strong here, but there is plenty of fruit and a lovely sense of tension on the finish. This is an excellent Pessac-Léognan from this rejuvenated estate.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Pippin apple, green melon rind and green plum notes mix with hints of tarragon and lime. Offers a fresh feel through the finish.—J.M.

Grapes

An aromatic variety that produces some of the world’s most exceptional dry whites as well as some of its greatest dessert wines. As a dry wine, such as Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé from France’s Loire Valley, it often displays what wine connoisseurs describe as « cat pee on a gooseberry bush » due to its notable grassy characteristics. In New Zealand, its most famous home outside of France, it often displays riper notes of tropical fruits such as mango and passion fruit. While Bordeaux often uses it as the main variety in its white blends, Sauvignon Blanc also works well and is susceptible to noble rot, helping create some of the region’s finest Sauternes. ...
A grape variety that is far more known behind the scenes than on centre stage, Sémillon produces some of the world’s greatest wines, most notably Sauternes from estates such as Château d’Yquem and Château Climens. Notably susceptible to botrytis (aka « noble rot »), it sheds its shy personality for one of exoticism, revealing notes of honeyed truffle, dried mango and lemongrass. As a dry wine in many of the white Bordeaux blends, it exhibits an ample palate of discreet flavours, including beeswax and pear. It is also known outside of France, most notably in bottlings from Hunter Valley, Australia. These wines are completely different with crisp acidity, tightly wound flavours and lowish-moderate alcohol. Cellaring is necessary in order to coax them out of their shell. ...

Graves, Pessac-Léognan

Graves, Pessac-Léognan

Graves and Pessac-Léognan are both located south of the city of Bordeaux unlike the Médoc which lies to the north of the region’s capital city. In fact, its most esteemed properties – Châteaux Haut-Brion, La Mission Haut-Brion and Pape Clément are only a few minutes’ drive away. Graves is the larger region of the two, which actually houses the smaller “cru” of Pessac-Léognan. Located further south, its climate is warmer, which usually produces slightly earlier harvests. But its soil is also different – well-draining gravel (known as “graves” in French) as well as clay. As a result, a higher proportion of Merlot is planted here – as much as 50% in some estates. It has long been a well-known region for wine and was sought as early as the 1700s for its bottles. Due to its unique micro-climate, its wines can often be notably rich in riper vintages but also moderately herbaceous in cooler ones. Another more unusual characteristic is that it produces excellent white wines as well, which can sometimes be even greater than its reds. ...
