Media Reviews

Jane Anson

Vibrant aromatics on the nose are joined by well focussed citrus pep. This is an attractive white, punching way above the vintage, with a lick and a kick and a sense of juicy relief. The rich body suggests generous alcohol but it`s held well. 92 points

Julia Harding

Slightly candied citrus on the nose, giving a sweet/sour effect on the palate, sweet fruit but slightly tart acid. Uncomfortable at the moment. 15 points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The de Fieuzal 2018 Blanc bursts from the glass with gregarious green mango, guava and fresh limes scents followed by green apples and pineapple plus a waft of honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with topical and citrus layers, with a satiny texture and bold freshness, finishing savory. 92-94 points

Chris Kissack

A rather stolid character on the nose here, showing lightly baked apple and orchard fruits, all wrapped up in a little buttery oak, although there is an intriguing note of salty pear behind it. A rather broad, indeed rather fat palate follows, showing a volume bordering on corpulence, with a pithy phenolic substance, some proper weight, and plenty of bitter character, all wrapped up in oak. There is energy here, with a pithy, pine needle confidence from the Sauvignon. The acidity remains rather low-key throughout though, and the finish is certainly more about phenolic grip than it is the acid. 89-91 points
