Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 de Fieuzal rocks up with bold, confident Black Forest cake and crème de cassis scents followed by nuances of cigar box, new leather and Chinese five spice plus a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and decadently fruited, it has a chewy texture and lively freshness lifting the spicy finish.
400 years of history and 5 families have shaped the property, its wines and its values. From the Fieuzal family to the Quinn family, passing by Erik Bocké and Gérard Gribelin, each has touched Fieuzal with their vision. One virtue unites them all: respect for the earth upon which Fieuzal is utterly dependent.
