Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2016 Feytit-Clinet has a classy bouquet (as usual), featuring blackberry, briar, crushed stone and hints of sea cave and displaying wonderful definition and focus. The palate is very well defined with a fine bead of acidity. More structured than usual, with flecks of dark chocolate, this Feytit-Clinet has great depth but will clearly require time to coalesce toward the edgy finish. Another impressive wine from Jeremy Chasseuil. 93 points

The 2016 Feytit Clinet, a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, has such purity on the nose that you would almost consider this to be a Grand Cru Burgundy! It unfolds in the glass, black cherries mixed with raspberry coulis, just a little new oak to be integrated as it will during its barrel maturation. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe blackberry and bilberry notes, here certainly in Pomerol territory with sage and black truffle emerging towards the persistent finish. Jéremy Chasseuil has crafted a wonderful follow-up to the impressive 2 yet with a framework. 17 points

Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Feytit-Clinet comes across as very ripe and pushed, with less of the explosive energy of some past vintages. Or maybe the powerful tannins are simply buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Waves of fruit saturate the palate in a dramatic, distinctive Pomerol that shows the more virile side of the appellation. The 2016 is a terrific wine, but the question is whether it has one more gear left. I can`t wait to see how it develops. Tasted three times. 93-96 points
