Chateau de Fieuzal Blanc 2013 (RP:91)

FRW00084A

Chateau de Fieuzal 和不少波爾多酒一樣,以十九世紀初的擁有者來命名。其後,酒莊由 Griffon 家族擁有,此家族有幸和波爾多的教宗 Leon 十三世有連繫,所以可以用他們的 Pessac Leognan 酒來填滿梵蒂岡的酒窖。

酒莊後來再被 Ricard 家族購入,此家族擁有多個酒莊如 Domaine de Chevalier 和 Malartic Lagraviere。今天,酒莊由 Lochlann Quinn 擁有,他是聯合愛爾蘭銀行主席,於 2001 年購入。

Chateau de Fieuzal like many Bordeaux estates is named in honour of one of the earlier owners who managed the estate at the start of the nineteenth century. After that, the Bordeaux wine property was owned by the Griffon family. The Griffon’s, who were lucky to have connections to Pope Léon XIII in Bordeaux, were able to fill the Vatican’s cellars with their wines from the Pessac Leognan area. de Fieuzal was purchased by the well-known Ricard family. The Ricard’s owned multiple Bordeaux wine estates including Domaine de Chevalier and Malartic Lagraviere. Today, Chateau de Fieuzal is owned by Lochlann Quinn, the chairman of Allied Irish Banks who purchased Chateau de Fieuzal in 2001 from interestingly another bank.

Tasting Notes:

Surprisingly full, rich, exuberant and borderline flamboyant, this is a stunning white Graves to consume over the next 20+ years.
