Chateau de Fieuzal

​Chateau de Fieuzal is an historic producer from the village of Léognan, within the Bordeaux sub-region of Graves. Located on the left-bank of Bordeaux, Graves is also home to the infamous first growth: Chateau Haut Brion. Chateau de Fieuzal is also the name given to the first wine, or ‘grand vin’, produced from the estate’s 39ha vineyards. In the 1959 Classification of Graves, the estate’s ‘grand vin’ was classified as Cru Classé, recognising it as a wine of superior quality and prestige.

Chateau de Fieuzal

​De Fieuzal was bought by Swedish-born Erik Bocké after the end of the war and he was responsible for building up the Château’s reputation which culminated in it being classified as a Graves Cru Classé in 1959. His son-in-law Gérard Gribelin took over in 1974 and further modernised the property by installing stainless steel fermentation tanks and by raising the proportion of new barrels used in the maturation process. In 1994 De Fieuzal was bought by Fructivie, a French insurance company, before changing hands again in 2001 when in came under the ownership of its current proprietor, Lochlann Quinn, a former chairman of Allied Irish Bank.
