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.

Over the years, L’Abeille has developed a strong identity of its own. Crafted with the same careful attention as Château de Fieuzal, it is conceived for light-hearted, easy-going enjoyment. Its fruit stems from the same vines as the first wine, grown with the same degree of care and preserving Fieuzal’s unique combination of freshness and finesse. L’Abeille white is majority Sémillon, giving a generous bouquet of aromas balanced with a touch of crisp indulgence.

Vintage conditions


This vintage was unique in the way it played out and is characterized by some extreme climatic conditions. After a cold and wet period during bud break, we witnessed 3 months of changeable weather that alternated between rain and sun. A temperate summer set the grapes on the right path to maturity, as the ‘veraison’ (when the grapes change colour) took place. The ripening period was gentle, which guaranteed excellent quality.

Tasting notes

Pale yellow with tints of lime-green, silver and gold, this wine is bright and bursting with youthfulness. The nose is pleasant, with mineral and lemon notes coming through. More fruit notes follow, including Mirabelle plums, raspberries and apricots, as well as touches of vanilla and gingerbread. The attack is supple at first then reveals volume and body on the mid-palate.
