2016 Feytit-Clinet, Pomerol

SKU #1398845 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark One of my favorite estates in Pomerol is Jeremy Chasseuil’s Château Feytit-Clinet, which covers a little over 6 hectares located between Trotanoy and Latour a Pomerol, in the Clinet sector of Pomerol. The brilliant 2016 Château Feytit-Clinet is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc that saw malolactic in barrel and 16 months in 70% new French oak. There are just over 1,500 cases of this elixir that reminds me of the 2010 with its incredibly classic, flawless personality. Pure crème de cassis, damp earth, black truffle, and graphite as well as hints of violets all emerge from this full-bodied, powerful yet seamless and elegant Pomerol. It never puts a foot wrong and is pure class, yet still has some rock star Pomerol sexiness. Don’t miss it! Inner quote mark (2/2019)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very assertive and handsomely ripe wine that has considerable richness and terrific balance and poise, as well as a phenomenal build of flavor and fine tannin at the finish. Great Pomerol. A blend of 93 per cent merlot and seven per cent cabernet franc. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Feytit Clinet is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc aged for 16 months in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak barrels. It has a deep garnet-purple color with lifted blueberries and black cherries with hints of lilacs, black tea, potpourri, wood smoke and black soil. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated, rich and bold with firm, rounded tannins, seamless freshness and a very long finish with chocolate hints. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Feytit-Clinet is gorgeous. Graphite, sage, menthol, gravel, crushed rocks, new oak and iron give the 2016 its distinctive savory/feral profile. Powerful and yet also translucent, the 2016 conveys intensity, but with less overtness than has often been the case in recent vintages. Feytit-Clinet is usually a big, explosive wine. The 2016 lacks some of that intensity, but it is nevertheless very pretty and full of personality. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe and spicy, this is a dense wine with solid tannins. Black plum and blackberry flavors give the wine its fruitiness, while the spicy tannins promise aging. This powerful wine has a good future. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

K&L Notes

93 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2016 Feytit-Clinet has a classy bouquet (as usual), featuring blackberry, briar, crushed stone and hints of sea cave and displaying wonderful definition and focus. The palate is very well defined with a fine bead of acidity. More structured than usual, with flecks of dark chocolate, this Feytit-Clinet has great depth but will clearly require time to coalesce toward the edgy finish. Another impressive wine from Jeremy Chasseuil." (01/2019)
