    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Feytit-Clinet storms out with powerful scents of plum preserves, baked black cherries, and boysenberries, plus wafts of underbrush and dried Provence herbs. Full-bodied, concentrated and with a solid backbone of firm, rounded tannins, it delivers just enough freshness to lift the dense black fruits on the long finish.

    The 2022 Feytit-Clinet, Pomerol's 'dark horse', is very perfumed on the nose with crushed violets and black plummy scents. Again, there's impressive delineation and, considering the season, delicacy. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins and good depth. Cedar and graphite notes appear toward the finish. Fine length, this is Feytit back in form after the 2021.

    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.
