Château de Fieuzal, Pessac-Léognan Rouge 1999

Château de Fieuzal, Pessac-Léognan 1999
Medium crimson red streaked with ochre.  Ample, slightly attenuated nose: meat, green pepper, smoke and an integrated barrel toastiness.  On the palate, medium-full body with notes of earth and spice:  damson plum, black currant.  Not the classiest: its a little ungainly, a bit rustic and a touch burly.  Nicely grippy tannins though.  The Fieuzal ’99 should be consumed over the next two years.  Now – 2015.
