Critic Notes

As I have written in previous Bordeaux reports, proprietor Chasseuil is on the move qualitatively, taking Feytit-Clinet to the summit of Pomerol. Readers should latch on to a few bottles as it is just a matter of time before prices reflect the quality at this estate. Another big-time winner, the 2011 boasts a blue/black/purple color and thick, rich, meaty, blood-like berry fruit intermixed with hints of truffles and licorice. This formidably endowed wine (one of the most concentrated of the vintage) has no hard edges. The final blend was 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Give it another 3-4 years to develop a few nuances aromatically, and drink it over the following 10-15 years. Apr 2014, www.robertparker.com

Score: 95-/100Robert Parker

Located across the road from Chateau Clinet, this Pomerol has been on a roll since 2006. Blending 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, the wine opens with chocolate, truffle, black raspberry and plum. Very supple, rich and plush, this Pomerol finishes with lush chocolate-covered plums. <b>theWineCellarInsider.com</b>

This is really well done with roses, raspberries and blueberries. Full and super silky textured with an outstanding finish. Lovely length. Sexy. <b> jamessuckling.com</b>

Score: 90-91/100James Suckling

Two samples tasted although the first is not representative. The second displays attractive, rounded dark cherry fruit on the nose that is well defined and a little more generous than Jeremy Chasseuil’s wine is usually at this stage. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, masculine tannins. Dark and broody with fine tertiary flavours underneath, it has quite a spicy but foursquare finish that will need time to mellow. Enigmatic as ever. <b>Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com</b>

Score: 89-91/100Neal Martin

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Black core and dark cherry rim. Rich, dark and exotic on the nose. Finest of tannins and lots of fresh juicy fruit in the middle. Firm tannic build. not dry just pretty embryonic. <b>Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com</b>

Score: 16.5-/20Jancis Robinson

Deep crimson hue. Sweet and ripe on the palate yet oak is a touch invading. Good fruit and intensity and the finish is firm and dry. <b>Drink 2018-2025. Decanter.com</b>

F+R Opinion
2014: THE F+R PICKS. FEYTIT-CLINET
We have been fans of this tiny Pomerol estate for a few years now.  Jeremy Chasseuil produces very small quantities of quite brilliant wines, very much in a Burgundian style, yet remains under the radar for many despite the unquestionable quality.  This year Feytit-Clinet was our last visit of the week, and was preceded by tastings at Lafleur, Le Pin ...

2014 Bordeaux: GPL, Feytit-Clinet and the Perse selection
Yesterday afternoon saw the release of 2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste.  This was one of our favourite wines of the vintage, and at GBP 375 per dozen in bond it looks good, though one can buy the 2008 and the 2006 for a similar sum.  Whatever one might think of the price, the wine is excellent: pure Pauillac, complete and fresh. This morning sees ...

Pomerol: Small but Beautiful
Bordeaux: the foundation of any cellar.  The greatest, and most famous wine producing region in the world.  The heart of fine wine production.  These are all arguable.  And, conveniently, there is rather a lot of it.  The average left bank chateau will have an annual production of up to 20,000 cases per year, and barrel cellars the size of football ...

A Pomerol Evening with Neal Martin
On Wednesday night we were privileged to have the company of Neal Martin at a small dinner in the private room of the brilliant Chez Bruce. The theme was, of course, Pomerol and Neal’s recently published book on the region. Wine and food first. The aim of the wine selection was to be eclectic rather than simply aiming for the ...
