Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2020 Feytit-Clinet starts off a little closed, requiring a few swirls to unlock notes of fresh black and red cherries, blackberries, fragrant earth, and fallen leaves. Full-bodied, the palate delivers a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins with just enough freshness to counter the rich, concentrated black fruit flavors, finishing with great length.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2020 Feytit-Clinet has a vibrant, expressive, beautifully-defined bouquet with wonderful tension considering the growing season. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, very fine acidity, blackberry and boysenberry fruit with white pepper and thyme towards the finish. Impressive length and class, this is a superb Pomerol.

Château Feytit Clinet

Château Feytit Clinet

Feytit Clinet is a tiny Chateau situated next to Latour à Pomerol and L'Eglise Clinet. Jeremy Chasseuil, who studied oenology at Bordeaux University, looks after everything at the Chateau from the vineyard right through to bottling. After joining in 2000, he has introduced greater selection in the vineyard and subsequently smaller yields. Parcels are hand harvested individually according to maturity and are placed in small baskets. Changes to the winemaking include a much longer cuvaison, which gives the wine greater richness and concentration without losing any of the finesse. Chasseuil has also introduced a higher percentage of new oak: 2000 has 70% while the 2001 has 100% new barrique. Malolactic fermentation is now largely done in oak to add roundness and complexity.
