Château-de-Fieuzal Pessac Leognan 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
Barrel Sample. Smooth and concentrated, this wine is rich while keeping a great sense of freshness. It has a dark power that is restrained by the fine acidity and perfumed black fruits.
A fresh bay leaf note streaks ahead of the core of raspberry and red currant coulis flavors, with sleek sanguine and iron details keeping pace. The long, cedar-tinged finish has good tension and energy. Best from 2020 through 2030. 10,000 cases made. — JM
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 De Fieuzal is scented of lovely ripe plums and crushed red currants with touches of forest floor and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, firm and grainy with great freshness cutting through the earthy layers, it finishes long.
