Very beautiful reference of the Graves region, Château de Fieuzal is located in the commune of Léognan. Existing for several centuries but having been abandoned in the aftermath of the French Revolution, the vineyard was reborn at the end of the First Empire and its reputation will continue to grow.
Classified as a red wine in the Graves Classification in 1953, it has been owned since 2001 by the Irish couple Brenda and Lochlann Quinn. With tradition and modernity, the vineyard is managed with the utmost care in respect of the environment. Thanks to a new winery inaugurated in 2011, optimization is the key word during the vinifications.
Fieuzal's Château has a 48-hectare vineyard planted on gravel and clay-limestone sand soils.
- The red grape variety (42 ha) is 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. The maturation of the great wine lasts from 12 to 18 months in French oak barrels of which 50% are new. The Bee of Fieuzal is the Second red wine.
