Deep purple-black in color, the 2020 de Fieuzal sashays out of the glass with scents of black cherry compote, blackcurrant pastilles and baked plums, plus hints of violets, dark chocolate, powdered cinnamon and dried mint. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of juicy black fruits, framed by wonderfully velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on an uplifting mineral note.

Michael Schuster

(55% M, 35% CS, 10% PV; 13.5% ABV)
Densely ripe, black-fruit nose, stylish, subtly mineral; elegantly restrained balance; a rich middleweight, fresh in acidity, very fine in tannins; long and graceful in a 2020 ebulliently fruity style, particularly ripe and generous from the highest proportion ever of Merlot, stylish, aromatic, succulent, and fine, and with lovely fruit length, too. 2026–40+.

James Suckling

A ripe, savory red with blackberry, blueberry, mushroom and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and dense with layers of fruit and tannins.

Jancis Robinson

Full bottle 1,355 g. Cask sample 'prepared' 6 April. 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot.
Deep crimson with a pale rim. Just a little skinny on the nose. And decidedlly so on the palate. This doesn't seem fully ripe with green fruit flavours and it has drying sandpaper tannins on the end.

Jeff Leve

Showing more body and intensity than found in previous vintages, the wine opens with smoked wood embers, black, red and blue fruit, coffee bean, wet earth, thyme and spice box aromas. On the palate the wine is plush, soft and polished, with loads of smoky dark red fruits and a tint of espresso on the mid-palate and in the opulent finish. Give it 5 years in the cellar and it will be even better. 92-94

Jeb Dunnuck

Starting off slightly earthy, the 2020 Château De Fieuzal opens up nicely with time in the glass, developing more scorched earth, graphite, and currant and darker berry-like fruits. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, and lively on the palate, it has the purity and freshness that seem prevalent in all the top wines in this vintage, terrific mid-palate depth, and ripe, polished tannins. I was able to taste this wine on multiple occasions, and it was consistently outstanding.

Tasted by Jane Anson(at Primeur week tastings in Bordeaux, 01 May 2021)

Ruby red, plenty of red fruit aromatics also, savoury redcurrant and raspberry, not as concentrated as some, this has sinew and juice, a little austere, but I like the floral aromatics as it opens. A fairly subdued Fieuzal, structured with excellent juicy tension but not generous at this point. Tasted twice. 14 months ageing.
