Tasting Notes

White currants, and fennel seed/licorice intermixed with ripe grapefruit, honeyed melons and a touch of new oak are all present in this fresh, medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, crisp, dry white Graves. Anticipated maturity: now-2025. Drink: 2012 - 2025

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (199), March 2012

Tasted at a negociant. This is a perfumed, quite floral, peach and elderflower scented bouquet with good definition and lift. The palate is primal on the entry, showing good depth with grapefruit, apricot and some honeyed flavours towards the rounded zesty finish. This Fieuzal has some chutzpah for the vintage. Very fine. Tasted April 2010.

Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, April 2010

Tangy, with lots of lemon and other citrus fruit character on the nose and palate. Excellent density of fruit and good acidity for the vintage. This is going places.

James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2010

Lemony, rather suppressed nose. Chalky, mineral finish. This is a slow burner. Bone dry and not at all flashy. Very promising indeed. Date tasted 2nd April 2010. Drink 2016-2026.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2010

Very crisp and fresh with lemony acidity to match the vanilla, spice and cream of the palate. Finely balanced dry white wine.

Farr Vintners, April 2010

Clear lemon yellow, lively and quite appley fruit, good freshness and good length. Drink 2012-15.
