Showing some age with the tannish gold. Green vegatables on the nose with a bit of citrus. Thin and watery at first( made worse if too cold) but filling out a bit in the midpalate. Glue, pepper, asparagus, and olive oil. Turns harsh and astringent on the finish. Interesting, but not something to repeat.

(Chateau de Fieuzal Blanc Pessac-Léognan) A full, toasty, creamy, lanolin-laden nose. Creamy and round, with a little grip and structure, but as we might expect low acidity. There is some character though, a spicy, peppery element, and a full, pleasing nature. Some oak tannin adding to the grip on the finish. There is much more to comment on than when tasted at the UGC, but nothing will ever change the inadequacy of acidity and freshness in this vintage.
(Chateau de Fieuzal Blanc Pessac-Léognan) There is a little honeyed oak showing on the nose here. It has better grip. At least this gives the impression of some worthwhile flavour on the palate, but again the acidity and freshness is nowhere to be seen. Very disappointing. Avoid.
