Chateau De Fieuzal Pessac-Leognan Graves Bordeaux Blanc 2018  - First Bottle


96 Wine Enthusiast -
This wine is rich, generously textured and ripe. Acidity is comfortably integrated into the wine's texture, offering hints of tropical fruits, taut minerality and a spicy and warm future. Drink from 2024.
94 James Suckling -
This has a rich, toasty nose of cooked pear, dried pineapple, hazelnut and marmalade. It’s full-bodied with bright acidity. Dense and powerful. Better from 2022.
92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
De Fieuzal's 2018 Blanc bursts with tropical fruit notions of green guava, fresh pineapple and mango, followed by nuances of yuzu zest, lime leaves and jasmine. The medium-bodied palate delivers fantastic freshness and intensity with loads of citrusy layers, delivered with lovely harmony, finishing on a lingering pineapple note.
92 Wine Spectator -
This is plump, with a mix of star fruit, white peach and lemon gelée notes, backed by straw and honeysuckle through the finish. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2023. 1,200 cases made.
90 Jeb Dunnuck -
Another beautiful white, the 2018 Château De Fieuzal Blanc has plenty of honeyed lime, grapefruit, and pineapple notes to go with a supple, nicely textured, balanced style on the palate. With juicy acidity, moderate depth and length, but just loads of charm, it's ideal for enjoying over the coming 4-5 years.

Pessac-Leognan, the Bordeaux region where a bottle of white can set you back as much as $1300! We’ve got one of the fiercest, tastiest whites of the region, at a price you won’t believe! 96 points (that $1300 bottle of Haut Brion Blanc from the same vintage got a 98, FYI) at the incredible price of under $60!!! This is a steal!

Château De Fieuzal is our go-to when it comes to monstrously over-delivering bottles of Bordeaux Blanc. This 2018 is as good as we’ve ever tasted from the estate, and this truly is one of the best value, and highest quality Bordeaux Blancs to come out of the spectacular 2018 vintage! The land here has been farmed to vine for over 400 years, with Grand Cru status granted more recently in 1959. Only five families have owned the estate over the centuries, with Brenda and Lochlan Quinn at the helm since 2001.

This energetic and highly polished sauvignon blanc and semillon blend harnesses the power and minerality of Graves famous river stones to craft a vibrant expression that is simply classic Pessac-Leognan. Floral and perfumed notes of honeysuckle, Champagne mangoes, and Buddha’s Hand lemons, join this struck-match aroma, joined immediately by a swish of salty sea air. Zippy citrus of lemon, lime, and pomelo punctuate the mouth, with richer notes of white peach and caramelized pineapple developing towards the finish. It’s weighty and round, yet lively and fresh, with a medley of rocky, spicy accents that drag this wine’s finish through a winding mountain stream. Fantastic now with a few years under its belt, but with the purity and intensity to develop another decade yet! If you’ve never experienced top-flight Bordeaux Blanc from Graves – this is simply a must-buy. While we’ve got it, of course!

About the Producer

Fieuzal’s respect for its land goes back over 400 years to when it was harvested by a handful of modest wine growers. As the terroir gained reputation, it received the name ‘Fieuzal’ in 1864, after ‘Lovely Fieuzal’, the last descendent of the Fieuzal family. Fieuzal’s legendary 1893 vintage sat on the table of Pope Léon XIII in the Vatican and its red became Grand Cru Classé in 1959 - now recognised as one of the finest Grand Crus of Bordeaux.
