Feytit-Clinet 'Les Colombieres'.

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.

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.
