Château de Fieuzal 2006 Pessac-Léognan Blanc

    Tasting notes: The Château de Fieuzal 2006 Pessac-Léognan Blanc is forward, generous, and rich, displaying long, deep flavors of ripe fruit and spice, and hints of lovely new wood. Worth knowing: Owned by the La Rochefoucauld family in the days before the French Revolution, Fieuzal was converted to a wine estate in the 19th century. Its red wine was classified as Graves in the 1950s, but its white wine, produced in smaller quantities, remains unclassified to this day. The property, with its 180 acres of vines planted in the district’s signature gravelly soil, has been in the possession of Irishman Lochlann Quinn since 2001.
