2015 Feytit-Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1201237 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

 One of the true blockbusters in the vintage is the 2015 Château Feytit-Clinet and readers should beg, borrow, or steal to get ahold of this beauty. Made from 96% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, it offers an incredible perfume of black cherries, blackcurrants, spring flowers, violets and damp earth. With a huge, full-bodied profile, an opulent, seductive texture, big tannin, and perfect balance, it’s a true superstar that’s going to cruise in the cellar for two to three decades.  (11/2017)

96 points Vinous

 The 2015 Feytit-Clinet is a wine of dark, brooding intensity. Vertical in its construction, the 2015 exudes power and structure. My sense is that the 2015 is recovering from its relatively recent bottling, as it is a bit closed down today. Even so, the depth and richness the 2015 showed as a barrel sample are still very much in evidence. Black cherry, plum, graphite, smoke, heavy toast and lavender add myriad shades of nuance. In two separate tastings, the 2015 was much less expressive than it was as a barrel sample, which probably bodes very well for its long term future. I wouldn't dream of opening a bottle anytime soon. Tasted two times. (AG)  (2/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Feytit Clinet is composed of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc and aged for 15 months in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has a lovely nose of crème de cassis, preserved plums and wild blueberries with touches of baking spices and dark chocolate plus a waft of roses. The medium to full-bodied palate is opulent with firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. (LPB)  (2/2018)

93 points James Suckling

 A very plush and fluid wine that’s great value for 2015. Dark plums, smooth baking spices and a gently tarry edge lead to a palate that offers succulent, fine tannins that exude smooth, velvety charm through the finish. Try from 2020.  (2/2018)

91 points Decanter

 Bright and fragrant, with fine texture and tannins. Builds on the palate to provide length. Fresh and persistent, showing elegant weight and style. (JL)  (4/2016)

K&L Notes

94 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Feytit Clinet has a very clean, precise and quite intense bouquet that offers gorgeous black cherry and raspberry fruit mingling with graphite and black truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, a subtle thread of graphite and a tensile, very sophisticated finish that deserves a hearty round of applause. Chapeau Jeremy Chasseuil (again). This is one of the most underestimated crus in Pomerol that delivers year after year. Anticipated maturity: 2020 - 2045." (02/2018)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
