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. Extraordinary freshness, naturally provided by our soils, holds the wines together with remarkable tension right to the finish. Fieuzal white is an enchanting balance between our Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fruit. Aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels, the wine grows to fill the entire palate whilst providing a teasing combination of zesty, fruity and floral notes.
The 2009 vintage, remarkable for its perfect weather conditions, was particularly generous at Fieuzal. The gentle growing season, combined with our very precise and meticulous work in the vineyard, meant the grapes reached perfect maturity. The weather in September and October allowed for exceptional ripening, meaning we were able to harvest the grapes 'à la carte' when and where we chose.

Château de Fieuzal: 2009
This fine white wine from Fieuzal is characterised by bright reflections that perfectly support a very pure ivory colour. Toasted aromas are predominant, with hazelnut and tobacco underpinning the citrus fruit notes of lemon and grapefruit. The sensation in the mouth is lively, a sign of great freshness, with a powerful attach and a very fine finish.
