Château de Fieuzal is an old estate that was once the property of the La Rochefoucauld family1. The estate gained reputation and received the name ‘Fieuzal’ in 1864, after ‘Lovely Fieuzal’, the last descendent of the Fieuzal family2. Fieuzal’s legendary 1893 vintage sat on the table of Pope Léon XIII in the Vatican and its red became Grand Cru Classé in 19592. The estate was managed by the Swede Erik Bocké whose wife inherited the estate after World War II1. Château de Fieuzal was acquired by Lochlann Quinn in 2011
Fieuzal creates wines that are memories of the past that can be kept and enjoyed at any moment. After 30 years of winemaking experience, our winemaker Stephen Carrier believes that there is no ‘right’ time to drink a wine, but that instead a truly great wine is great throughout the whole of its lifetime.
From the moment a new vine is planted to the many decades after a wine is put into bottle every moment in between is just part of an exciting journey that keeps wines and the art of winemaking alive.
