|Chateau Feytit Clinet ist ein typisches Weingut in der Appellation Pomerol: Chateau Feytit Clinet ist klein, die Weinberge erstrecken sich über gerade mal 6,5 Hektar, und in der Cuvée ist fast ausschließlich Merlot, gerade mal um die 10% Cabernet Franc kommen hinein. Wie alle Güter in Pomerol ist Feytit Clinet nicht klassifiziert. Die Fachleute sind sich aber einig darin, dass Chateau Feytit Clinet zu den herausragenden der Gegend gehört.
93-95+ THE WINEADVOCATE: "The 2019 Feytit Clinet rolls sensuously from the glass with notions of baked plums, Black Forest cake and blueberry preserves with touches of Chinese five spice, potpourri, dusty soil and garrigue. The medium to full-bodied palate bursts with ripe, rich black fruits, supported by plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy. This 6.68-hectare vineyard is situated between Trotanoy and Latour à Pomerol on gravel and sand-based soils."
94 FALSTAFF: "Dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Reifes dunkles Beerenkonfit, zart nach Feigen, dezente Edelholzwürze. Kraftvoll, gewürzig, süße Kirschfrucht, reife, tragende Tannine, elegant und gut anhaftend, mineralisch im Nachhall, feiner Schokoladetouch im Rückgeschmack, gutes Entwicklungspotenzial."
92-94 WINE ENTHUSIAST: "Spicy and full of dark fruits, this is setting out to be a richly balanced wine. Blackberry and plum skin flavors have a hint of chocolate, supported by ripe, textured tannins. There is good aging potential here."
95 DECANTER: "Some serious structure and lift going on here, this has walls to the tannins rather than just frame, and intends to hold its ground for a good few decades. Not the most exuberant Pomerol in the vintage, instead this goes for controlled but silky black fruits, holding back its coffee bean dusting until the wine has fully opened in the glass. Excellent quality from Jeremy Chasseuil at Feytit-Clinet in this vintage. 70% new oak. A yield of 42 hl/ha."
95-96 JAMES SUCKLING: " This is a real beauty with ripe, opulent fruit and plush, polished tannins. It’s focused and tight at the end, but the texture and flavor is of standout quality."
94-96 ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2019 Feytit-Clinet was cropped at 34hl/ha between 18 September and 3 October and matured in 70% new oak for an expected 16 months. It is understated at first and demands coaxing from the glass. It rewards you with pure black fruit, freshly shaved black truffles and touches of crushed stone. The palate is magnificent: precise tannins, a perfect line of acidity, impressive complexity and amazing focus. Oddly it reminds me of a Lafleur, though there is much less Cabernet Franc here. Unquestionably, this is the best Feytit-Clinet that Jeremy Chasseuil has overseen and I cannot wait to taste it in bottle." - Neal Martin
93-95 ANTONIO GALLONI: "One of the most distinctive wines in Pomerol, the 2019 Feytit-Clinet emerges from the glass with a heady concoction of gravel, smoke, licorice, incense, grilled herbs, sweet French oak and inky dark fruit. Virile, imposing and massively constituted, the 2019 possesses tremendous depth as well as persistence. As always, Feytit-Clinet is an especially rich, dense Pomerol. I can´t wait to see how it develops. Tasted two times."
95-97 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "This hits you right where it counts with all the truffle, dark chocolate and earthy plums, Good levels of concentration, richness, and velvety tannins make all the dark cocoa, black cherry, plum and truffle that much better. The finish really sticks with you too, coaxing you back for another sip. The wine blends 92% Merlot with 8% Cabernet Franc, reaching 14.8% alcohol with a pH of 3.8. This is a contender for the finest vintage of Feytit Clinet ever produced. Great job, Jeremy."
95-97+ JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2019 Château Feytit-Clinet is a beauty, offering loads of opulent blackcurrants, damp earth, licorice, new leather, and espresso aromas and flavors. It´s a big, rich barrel sample that packs plenty of depth and richness, yet also stays light on its feet, with no sensation of weight or heaviness. It also offers integrated oak and a great finish. I´d be thrilled to have bottles in the cellar."
