"This wine is packed with black currant fruit. It is warm, ripe and balanced by fine acidity. The structure will allow the wine to age well, with rich berry flavors and crispness in harmony."

93 Points - James Suckling
"A wine with depth and structure that’s defined by blackberry, blueberry and chocolate character. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Shows potential."

93 Points - Vinous/Antonio Galloni
"The 2016 de Fieuzal is a powerful, plush wine endowed with explosive energy and fabulous balance. Exotic, ripe and inviting, it demands attention. Waves of dark-toned fruit, chocolate, spice and new leather build into the exotic, plush finish. Terrific."

93 Points - Decanter
"Deep rose-violet colour, showing how easily anthocyanins were extracted this year. This is a lovely rich, well extracted, intense wine of succulent black cherry and damson fruits coupled with cigar box scents. It has this stunning balance and 'essence of Bordeaux' spirit that Pessac delivers so well in its best vintages."

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 De Fieuzal, which has enjoyed the consultancy services of Hubert de Boüard for a few years now, was uncharacteristically subdued on the nose when I encountered it on three occasions. The palate has more to say, bolstered by rigid and slightly chalky tannin that lend this Pessac-Léognan an undercurrent of energy. I cannot ever remember a more taut Château de Fieuzal than this 2016. There is freshness here, but at least at this prenatal stage, it is unwilling to dole out enjoyment. I hope that there is more charm to discern once it is bottled. At the moment, my preference would lie with the previous vintage. Drink 2021-2040."
