Tasting Notes

Score: 90+Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Aromas of lead pencil, tobacco leaf, licorice, and creme de cassis are offered in an outstanding, medium to full-bodied, concentrated style. There is tremendous purity as well as flavor dimension. This opaque ruby/purple-colored offering is one of the finest de Fieuzals produced over the last decade. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2022.

Score: 90Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (146), April 2003

Score: 87/90Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (139), February 2002

The earthy, dense purple-colored 2000 is narrowly constructed, but it exhibits pure, smoky, black currant and cherry fruit, mineral, and new oak aromas. Medium-bodied, with sweet tannin, and a well-defined, structured personality and finish, it will be at its peak between 2003-2015.

Score: 89/91Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (134), April 2001

This Pessac-Léognan absolutely blew us away when tasted blind last week. Fabulous silky vanilla-infused new oak and loads of ripe, almost decadent fruit. So gorgeous that it can be drunk now but clearly 20 years of drinking life ahead of it. Wonderful stuff.
