James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, August 2012
Wonderful aromas of flowers and berries. Subtle. Full and rich with silky tannins and a rich finish. This is compacted and gorgeous. Impressed. Try in 2016.

Ripe enticing aromas and flavors of blackcurrant black raspberry tobacco and graphite sexed up by an exotic suggestion of honeysuckle. Lush and silky on entry then deeply fruity and spicy in the middle with harmonious acidity giving shape to the fruit. Impressively dense for Fieuzal: this seriously rich yet vibrant 2009 finishes with serious but fully ripe tannins excellent length and the structure to age. A big success for the property.

A terrific classic Graves with notes of subtle smoke black raspberries black currants graphite and unsmoked cigar tobacco this full-bodied deep concentrated de Fieuzal is far more generous and deep than most vintages of the past. There is also a wonderful freshness and length to this somewhat oversized de Fieuzal while it still maintains its elegance and class. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. 92+

If Domaine de Chevalier tastes like the essence of Pessac merlot cabernet sauvignon finds its best representation at this tasting with Château de Fieuzal. With cabernet sauvignon comprising half the blend for the 2009 vintage (the remainder is 40% merlot 6% cabernet franc and 4% petite verdot) de Fieuzal is a pure wine. Faint aromas of fresh mushrooms along with spice box and pencil shavings give way to a fully textured palate with loads of blue fruits. Medium-bodied on the palate the acidity here gives this wine astounding length on the finish. Still taut at this early stage in bottle I'd enjoy this from 2015-2030+.
