    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    Medium plus to full intensity this is inky, with gorgeous violet reflections, grilled oak on the nose, intense but has good construction and a sense of reserve, Espresso and charred coffee bean, along with cassis and blueberry, silky, concentrated, appellation typicity, and a ton of personality.

    The 2023 Feytit-Clinet has a delightful bouquet that is subtle at first but coheres nicely, beautifully defined with black cherries, violets and truffle scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a deft touch of dark chocolate on the entry. It’s well-structured and firm in the mouth, but there is elegance here and a tender, persistent finish. This is another in a string of successful wines for the Chasseuil family estate. It’s on par with last year's wine.

    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.
