Critic Notes

The 2016 Feytit Clinet is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc aged for 16 months in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak barrels. It has a deep garnet-purple color with lifted blueberries and black cherries with hints of lilacs, black tea, potpourri, wood smoke and black soil. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated, rich and bold with firm, rounded tannins, seamless freshness and a very long finish with chocolate hints. About 1,583 cases produced.

This is layered and beautiful with blackberries, spices and hints of cedar. Full body, polished tannins and a gorgeous finish. Sexy. Better than 2015. Best ever? Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com

Score: 94-95/100James Suckling

The 2016 Feytit-Clinet comes across as very ripe and pushed, with less of the explosive energy of some past vintages. Or maybe the powerful tannins are simply buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Waves of fruit saturate the palate in a dramatic, distinctive Pomerol that shows the more virile side of the appellation. The 2016 is a terrific wine, but the question is whether it has one more gear left. I can't wait to see how it develops. Tasted three times.

The 2016 Feytit Clinet, a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, has such purity on the nose that you would almost consider this to be a Grand Cru Burgundy! It unfolds in the glass, black cherries mixed with raspberry coulis, just a little new oak to be integrated as it will during its barrel maturation. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe blackberry and bilberry notes, here certainly in Pomerol territory with sage and black truffle emerging towards the persistent finish. Jéremy Chasseuil has crafted a wonderful follow-up to the impressive 2015 Feytit-Clinet and I cannot wait to taste this from bottle. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2020-2045

Using 93% Merlot with 7% Cabernet Franc, this wine offers that great mix of truffle, flowers, cocoa, cherry and earth. Polished with silk, there is a heavenly sweetness in the fruit, feminine tannins and a freshness that piques your interest and pulls you deeper. Once again, Feytit Clinet remains the best value of any wine from Pomerol. Apr 2017, www.thewinecellarinsider.com

Lively and rich on the nose without much forcing. Really quite dramatic in 2016! Luscious yet with a framework. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2036

Score: 17-/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: 2024-2036

This has drama and tension, with coffee, black cherry, blackberry and liquorice. It is definitely fairly old school in its extraction, which veers towards being heavy-handed, but the overall impact is rather enjoyable. 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2025-2040

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 ...
