Blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc.
Chateau Feytit Clinet is located due west of the famous plateau of Pomerol, close to Chateau Clinet, Latour Pomerol and Clos LEglise. The earliest mentions of Chateau Feytit Clinet date all the way back to 1825, when it was owned by a member of the de Gombault family.
By 1964, the estate entered into a lease and management agreement with Ets. Moueix that lasted until 2000. At that point in time the Chasseuil family once again took control of Chateau Feytit Clinet and began to change things for the better at this Right Bank property and their wines.
Deep purple-colored, the 2011 Feytit-Clinet doesn’t have the density or weight of the 2009 or 2010 yet has beautiful purity in its ripe blue and black fruits, violets, and scorched earth. Medium to full-bodied, fresh, with building tannin, it’s balanced, rich, and a beautiful wine. It offers plenty of texture and charm today but will benefit from short-term cellaring. Jeb Dunnick – 94
