Fieuzal's reds, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit-Verdot, are planted on 65 hectares of the estate. Most of the red vines are planted on three gravelly hilltops, called Fieuzal, La Dispute and Ferbos. The texture of these hilltop soils and their vegetative layer, favour the growth of smaller, more concentrated grapes. A portion of the wine is aged in new oak barrels for a period of between 12 and 18 months. Decisions about the length of time and the portion of new oak used are, as ever, made with the aim of keeping texture, fruit and finesse of each vintage perfectly balanced.

Barrel Sample. Smooth and concentrated, this wine is rich while keeping a great sense of freshness. It has a dark power that is restrained by the fine acidity and perfumed black fruits.

Slightly higher pitched than most of its peers, with up-front damson plum and violet notes followed by cherry and red licorice flavors. The finish is tight but remains long. Should unwind with the élevage. (Barrel Tasting)
