FZ: A living heritage
Fieuzal creates wines that are memories of the past that can be kept and enjoyed at any moment. After 30 years of winemaking experience, our winemaker Stephen Carrier believes that there is no ‘right’ time to drink a wine, but that instead a truly great wine is great throughout the whole of its lifetime.
From the moment a new vine is planted to the many decades after a wine is put into bottle – every moment in between is just part of an exciting journey that keeps wines and the art of winemaking alive.
The wines of Château de Fieuzal have a distinct allure that is inseparable from the place from which they are grown. Every bottle enables us to share Fieuzal's unique energy, bringing to life every aspect of our complex terroir in an intense but precise balance. Fieuzal has the intriguing ability to hold one’s attention, by combining flavour and feeling; the senses and the sensual. Fieuzal red is a delightfully complex blend of multiple grape varieties, authentically expressing the vineyard’s incredible diversity. Aged for an average of 12 months in French Oak barrels, the wine is elegant, confidently expressive and dynamic throughout the whole of its lifetime.
2018 offered a wet spring and early summer, followed by excellent ripening conditions that resulted in very fine fruit. September and October were a winemaker’s dream. This 'Indian Summer' allowed us to harvest each plot at its desired degree of ripeness.

Château de Fieuzal: 2018
The colour is a deep, intense red that reflects the wine’s superb concentration. The nose is still restrained at this stage. On the palate, the wine is dense and silky at first, with an absolutely remarkable freshness that is the unique feature of this vintage and allows for great intensity with a singular finish. This Fieuzal 2018 offers exceptional ageing potential, demonstrating a mastery of fine balance and pure power.
