30 Second Wine Advisor: 2009 vintage lifts cheap Bordeaux - wineloverspage.com | Wine cellar | Scoop.it

Fortunately for bargain-seekers, there's a virtual ocean of "unclassified" Bordeaux, wines that didn't make the cut when the Bordeaux wine merchants tried to sort out quality on the basis of market price more than 156 years ago.

Chateau de Fieuzal - Travel through time and pleasure

Chateau de Fieuzal - Travel through time and pleasure | Wine cellar | Scoop.it

Ma Cave En France organized a 4 years testing of château de Fieuzal Red which is a Grand Cru classé in Pessac Leognan (Bordeaux).
We tested the following vintages: 1999, 2004, 2005, 2006
It was a blind test to avoid any influence on the panel of people who were all non professional winelovers to vote and sort their prefered vintage. It was full of learnings we want to share with you today beside the fact that Fieuzal is a great wine in Bordeaux pleasant and with a good pleasure to price ratio.
The final order was by preference : 2005, 1999 (really close), 2006 and far behind 2004.
- 2005 made a great difference by its strenght, lenght and power. To be kept some more
- 1999 was discovered quickly to be the oldest of the 4 but after letting it decanting a while its beauty was revealed. It is time to drink it if you still got some in your cellar and a long decanting time is mandatory to get the full pleasure of this nectar.
- 2006 is often qualified to be fresh and was differnet than the 3 others but letting the fruit dominating the Tanin of the wood. It gives him a strong potential and will express its talent in a different way than its pretigious oldest brother.
- 2004 is good but was less apreciated than the 3 others.
Just for memeory Robert Parker ranking is slightly different and to compare expert and amateurs is always a good experience:
1999 : 87/100
2004 : 89+/100
2005 : 90/100
2006 : 87/100

In any case what is not a surprise but still great to experience is that 2005 for French Bordeaux is clearly above the others !
