Wine Advocate

"90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""The 2016 De Fieuzal, which has enjoyed the consultancy services of Hubert de Boüard for a few years now, was uncharacteristically subdued on the nose when I encountered it on three occasions. The palate has more to say, bolstered by rigid and slightly chalky tannin that lend this Pessac-Léognan an undercurrent of energy. I cannot ever remember a more taut Château de Fieuzal than this 2016. There is freshness here, but at least at this prenatal stage, it is unwilling to dole out enjoyment. I hope that there is more charm to discern once it is bottled. At the moment, my preference would lie with the previous vintage."" 4/17 #230"

Neil Martin

92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2016 de Fieuzal has an intense, floral bouquet, quite Margaux-like in style, with scents of rose petal infusing the blackberry, cedar and mint aromas. The medium-bodied palate offers sappy black fruit that feels nicely enmeshed with the new oak. There is a modern sheen to this de Fieuzal, which shows touches of vanilla toward the finish and a sweet candied aftertaste."

Antonio Galloni

"90-93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: ""The 2016 de Fieuzal is a powerful, plush wine endowed with explosive energy and fabulous balance. Exotic, ripe and inviting, it demands attention. Waves of dark-toned fruit, chocolate, spice and new leather build into the exotic, plush finish. Terrific."" 4/17"
