    Critical Acclaim:

    Intense blueberry, coffee bean and toasted oak character follows through to a full body, with supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is really excellent. Best Fieuzal in years.

    Wine Spectator

    While there is definite high toast here, the structure is firm, showing dark plums, black berries and solid, ripe flavors.

    A terrific, classic Graves with notes of subtle smoke, black raspberries, black currants, graphite and unsmoked cigar tobacco, this full-bodied, deep, concentrated de Fieuzal is far more generous and deep than most vintages of the past. There is also a wonderful freshness and length to this somewhat oversized de Fieuzal while it still maintains its elegance and class. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.

    (a blend of 45% cabernet sauvignon and 55% merlot) Deep purple, almost inky ruby. Toasty aromas of black fruit, tobacco and minerals, with a strong torrefaction character; I might have picked this as coming from Napa Valley. Smooth and soft on entry, with moderately intense blackcurrant and mineral flavors, this relies more on its tannic backbone than its fruit flavors for texture and weight. Finishes moderately long but a bit dry, with plenty of mouthcoating tannins. Today this wine lacks charm; should it put on more flesh, my score will look conservative, but I wonder if this wine will ever turn around.
