FZ: A living heritage

Constant evolution

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.

White

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.

Vintage conditions

2012

Weather conditions during 2012 were excellent from May to August, but this was followed by a tricky period from mid-September onwards. The whites are rich and aromatic, and the reds are, in a word, remarkable: balanced, opulent and with perfect levels of acidity.

Tasting notes

The wine’s aromas are a deliciously complex balance of fresh citrus fruit, including mandarin and grapefruit. We also find saffron and tobacco, with notes of spices and oak. In the mouth, the wine feels at first pleasantly dense and round, while the finish is fresh and long.
