Consistently good wines are produced here at this Irish-owned château. The prices remain modest despite the quality and the wines are always typically Graves in style.
Made from 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot in 2023. 35% new oak.

The 2023 Fieuzal reveals a bright, perfumed bouquet of mulberries and cherries mingled with floral accents of violets, lilac and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, it's pure and seamless, with a fleshy core of fruit, bright acids and powdery, ultra-refined tannins, concluding with a mineral, penetrating finish. Under the adept guidance of Stephen Carrier, the estate-positioned on the border of the Pessac-Léognan appellation-has hit new heights in recent years.
94-96 Yohan Castaing, Wine Advocate.

Very impressive freshness and focus here. Bright and succulent, al-dente fruit right upfront and continuing through the whole length of the wine. Notes of forest floor, sea shell and iodine. Medium body. It has bright acidity that adds tension and a lot of energy. Fine tannins, already beautifully integrated.
93-94 James Suckling.

Vibrant plum in colour, with juice, density and grip, another sign of how they are evolving the structure and architecture of this wine, giving it nuance without sacrificing the complexity. Cocoa bean, sweet berry, fruits, this is delicious.
93 Jane Anson

Opening with a mix of floral bouquet, raspberry and plum, the wine is more ethereal than usual from this estate: delicate, smooth tannins lead to a creamy mid palate, not without structure, rather subtle including ripe fruit sweetness, liquorice and crushed tobacco freshness on the medium finish.
93 Panos Kakaviatos, Decanter.
