Tasting Notes and Scores
This estateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s extraordinary progression in quality over recent years has culminated in the greatest Feytit-Clinet ever made. The inky/purple-tinged 2009 reveals loads of spring flower aromas intermixed with notions of charcoal, black currants, black raspberries, blueberries, graphite, blackberries, and hints of licorice and forest floor. A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that achieved 14.5% alcohol naturally, consumers should jump on this exquisite Pomerol as the marketplace has not yet caught up with the quality emerging from this property. Yields were 34 hectoliters per hectare. Thick, unctuous flavors, full-bodied power, and sweet tannins suggest it will drink well for 25-35 years. Sadly, only 1,300 cases will be produced. (Tasted three times.)
Tasted at the Pomerol Syndicate tasting. The Feytit 09 has an almost bashful bouquet that takes some coaxing from the glass, eventually revealing some lovely blackberry and boysenberry aromas. The palate is full-bodied, a lot of extraction here, a really mouth-filling Feytit with fine definition and a smooth, chocolate tinged finish that displays impressive persistency. Feytit remains one of the up and coming Pomerol estates. Tasted April 2010.
