This is a superb and sophisticated Pomerol. It brims with elegant damson red fruit and is bolstered by ultra-fine tannins. Silky smooth with a finish that commands attention.

Wine Makers

Feytit-Clinet 'Les Colombieres'. by Jeremy Chasseuil

Chateau Feytit-Clinet is nestled amongst illustrious neighbours in the heart of Pomerol. Surrounded by heavyweights, such as Clos l’Église and Latour a Pomerol, the tiny size of this vineyard (6.5hectares) belies the powerful produce made by its owner, Jeremy Chasseuil.

 

Feytit-Clinet had previously been owned by French wine giant Moueix up until 1999. They were known to produce the solid but unremarkable wines associated with industrial winemaking. After a lengthy legal battle, Jeremy Chasseuil fittingly took over the vineyard as it was Jeremy’s father who had first planted vines here.

 

Since then, Feytit-Clinet has gone on to become one of the most renowned growths in the region. As a viticulturalist and oenologist, Jeremy has driven change through manual harvesting, manual sorting and de-stemming of grapes. The swirling colours and velvety tannins are achieved by his gentle extraction techniques and the complexity is earned during the wines lengthy stay on its lees and a 16 – 18 month ageing in barrels.

 

His wines are as yet only ⅓ the price of those of his up-market neighbours. They are only going to get more expensive as this is the up-and-coming winemaker of the Pomerol appellation.

In The Press

Press Reviews

"The second wine of Chateau Feytit-Clinet which was owned until 2000 by Petrus's JP Moueix. Today it is back in the hands of the Chasseuil family and this second wine shows the polished, medium-bodied, merlot-driven excellence. A fine Pomerol and a super price." Tomás Clancy, The Sunday Business Post.

"A Pomerol with plummy fruit, backed up by a milk-chocolate character and supple tannins." Martin Moran, Sunday Times.

"Subtle, distinctive Pomerol from a great vintage; lovely to drink now, but will undoubtedly be "a keeper". Great value for money." Ernie Whalley, Sunday Times.

"Lively, scented with cherry and plum notes. Easy, luscious style, midweight with light tannins. Flowing and attractive." *** Decanter Magazine.
