WINE OF THE WEEK
The white Château de Fieuzal is a Grand Cru Classé from Graves produced in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. After 2016, the 10 hectares of white grape vines are being converted to organic farming. The vineyard is planted on the gravel-rich soils characteristic of the appellation. The white château de Fieuzal comprises a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Sémillon.
On tasting, the 2016 Château de Fieuzal white develops subtle and discreet notes of white fruit (pear, white peach), linked to floral notes. The wine is very fine, with a nice acidity that gives it great tension. In the finish, the Château de Fieuzal bianc 2016 expresses a beautiful minerality.
