2014 Pomerol from Bordeaux
The 2014 Chateau Feytit-Clinet offers intense, fleshy black fruit aromas mixed with spicy hints. This Pomerol palate reveals a carefully built structure on well ripened tannins, delicately extracted and giving a refined texture to the whole. The 93% Merlot bring vibrancy to this wine.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château Feytit-Clinet 2014 is another strong effort from Jeremy Chasseuil who has reinvigorated this Pomerol cru in recent years, almost under the radar (apart from perhaps the Pomerol cognoscenti and those that bought my tome.) This year is a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet France picked between 29 September and 10 October, matured in 80% new French oak. It is very refined on the nose, very subtle, a sample that you have to spend time with. It unfurls with mulberry and seaweed scents. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin that lend this Pomerol a sense of mineralité, but there is a lovely crescendo here towards a finish that fans out beautifully. This is a sophisticated, understated and quite intellectual showing.
