Fieuzal's reds, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit-Verdot, are planted on 65 hectares of the estate. Most of the red vines are planted on three gravelly hilltops, called Fieuzal, La Dispute and Ferbos. The texture of these hilltop soils and their vegetative layer, favour the growth of smaller, more concentrated grapes. A portion of the wine is aged in new oak barrels for a period of between 12 and 18 months. Decisions about the length of time and the portion of new oak used are, as ever, made with the aim of keeping texture, fruit and finesse of each vintage perfectly balanced.

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.
