The 2015 Feytit Clinet has a very clean, precise and quite intense bouquet that offers gorgeous black cherry and raspberry fruit mingling with graphite and black truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, a subtle thread of graphite and a tensile, very sophisticated finish that deserves a hearty round of applause. Chapeau Jeremy Chasseuil (again). This is one of the most underestimated crus in Pomerol that delivers year after year. Anticipated maturity: 2020 - 2045.
A very plush and fluid wine that’s great value for 2015. Dark plums, smooth baking spices and a gently tarry edge lead to a palate that offers succulent, fine tannins that exude smooth, velvety charm through the finish. Try from 2020.
The 2015 Feytit Clinet is composed of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc and aged for 15 months in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has a lovely nose of crème de cassis, preserved plums and wild blueberries with touches of baking spices and dark chocolate plus a waft of roses. The medium to full-bodied palate is opulent with firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. 2019 - 2043
Very rich, almost brûlée, on the nose. Thick and creamy in texture. Lots of reward. Quite forward. Great for restaurants?
This tiny 17 acre Pomerol estate has been on the up since proprietor Jeremy Chasseuil took back control in 2000 after a long standing lease with Moueix expired. With only a 1200 case production, it is worth looking out for en primeur in the good vintages. Inky colour, with a nose of ripe black cherry and clove. The palate is ripe, concentrated and full bodied with firm tannins coating a dense core of juicy black cherry fruit. The finish is toasty and smoky with new oak which adds a dimension of sweet complexity on the long finish.
One of the true blockbusters in the vintage is the 2015 Château Feytit-Clinet and readers should beg, borrow, or steal to get ahold of this beauty. Made from 96% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, it offers an incredible perfume of black cherries, blackcurrants, spring flowers, violets and damp earth. With a huge, full-bodied profile, an opulent, seductive texture, big tannin, and perfect balance, it’s a true superstar that’s going to cruise in the cellar for two to three decades. 2021 - 2051
Ripe black plum richness on the nose the palate is sweet with fleshy suppleness. Slightly fresher at the back but it fills out on the finish with depth of flavour rich ripe fruit. 2024-35
Lovely, textured, restrained Pomerol from a château that deserves a bigger reputation. Coffee
bean and mocha aromas add a sheen to the structured, yet voluptuous fruit flavours with
acidity and minerality for balance. Drink: 2022-32
The 2015 Château Feytit-Clinet has a perfumed and floral bouquet, wilted violets filtering through the dark cherry and cassis fruit, gaining more complexity as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin that are cloaked in layers of lightly toasted dark berry fruit, the new oak a little obvious at the moment, yet there is more than sufficient fruit to subsume all that with 6-8 years in bottle. Jeremy Chasseuil has created another exemplary Pomerol from this estate that continues to threaten to break into the big league. This is absolutely delicious and it deserves the great recognition that this wine currently attracts. Drink 2023-2050.
Fabulous depth of fruit here with blackberry, blueberry, mineral and dried meat character. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.
