Business man Lochlann Quinn’s love of good wine led him to invest in Bordeaux. Burgundy was impossible to buy into as a non-Burgundian, and Bordeaux, a more inviting region, was his next choice.
Located in the commune of Pessac-Léognan in the Graves region on the left bank of the Garonne river, he purchased the property in 2001.
Chateau de Fieuzal’s white is perfectly balanced with a fruity depth and aroma, minerality (from that stony soil) and weight (from the Semillon and Muscadelle grapes) while remaining fresh and lively (from the Sauvignon Blanc and good wine making). It’s a wine that will deepen with age when it rounds out to a silky smoothness, but is a joy to drink young.
The reds need time (at least five years) and are a typical Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit-Verdot which in these hands deliver extraordinary fruit balanced with elegance and restraint suited to fine dining – wines to invest in when a baby is born, to open at celebrations, to drink ‘a deux’.
