2020 Château de Fieuzal  (Pessac-Léognan) 93

Showing more body and intensity than found in previous vintages, the wine opens with smoked wood embers, black, red and blue fruit, coffee bean, wet earth, thyme and spice box aromas. On the palate the wine is plush, soft and polished, with loads of smoky dark red fruits and a tint of espresso on the mid-palate and in the opulent finish. Give it 5 years in the cellar and it will be even better. 92-94 Pts
