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.

Red

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 red is majority Merlot, therefore delicately smooth whilst being juicy, fruity, and full of character.

Vintage conditions

2015

A mild winter and a very pleasant spring led to perfect flowering. This was followed by a heat wave during the summer - conditions that allowed for slow, gentle ripening and gave birth to berries that were small and rich in concentration.

Tasting notes

The colour is ruby-red with pale red tints. The nose is charming, offering aromas of fresh red fruit, including strawberries, raspberries and cherries, as well as discreet vanilla notes. In the mouth, the attack is smooth and the mid-palate is dense. The finish is precise, with good length.
