2018 de Fieuzal, Pessac-Léognan

SKU #1505350 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine offers solid, concentrated tannins that meld with succulent dark fruits. Its firm structure promises great aging potential. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This feels closed in and confident but is not giving much away. It has a silky texture with firm and bristling tannins - you can feel the latent power, pretty much in line with 2010 or 2016 in terms of its construction. Liquorice and dark chocolate are joined by freshly cut herbs and black pepper notes. Great stuff. The winemaker is Stephen Carrier, with no consultant used. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very attractive center palate with dark-berry, walnut and cedar character. Just a hint of bark. Medium-bodied. Juicy finish. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 de Fieuzal rocks up with gregarious scents of baked plums, stewed cherries and dried mulberries plus suggestions of Chinese five spice, unsmoked cigars and sautéed herbs. The rich, full-bodied palate has loads of exotic spice and raisin cake layers with a firm, chewy frame, finishing just a little hard. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

88-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Fieuzal is fruity and quite powerful. I am not sure the heavily extracted style is ideal, as the wine has a level of tannic clout that is perhaps too much for its medium-bodied frame. Nonetheless, the 2018 is quite expressive. Red plum, white pepper, mint and chalk add brightness to the deep, layered fruit. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

88-91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Overt plum and blackberry jam flavors lead off here, backed by fruitcake and red licorice accents. A slightly taut plum skin note pinches the finish a bit. This could move up if it unwinds. (JM, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

Plus, with a nose of cassis and plum. On the palate, boysenberries, black cherries, and cherry liqueur. Nice tannins and a finish with light tobacco. Amazingly drinkable now!
