JAMES SUCKLING: "A medium-bodied red that starts off beautifully, with attractive currant and berry character, as well as black olive and violet. Fresh and vivid."
JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2021 Château Feytit-Clinet comes from a 6.68-hectare vineyard located between Trotanoy and Latour a Pomerol, not far from Clinet. Based on 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that will spend 16 months in 70% new barrels, it offers a round, fleshy, medium to full-bodied style that brings plenty of mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and ample darker, blue fruits as well as some classic Pomerol earthy and floral nuances. It's beautifully done and certainly offers more pleasure and opulence than most out there."
DECANTER: "So much aromatic complexity on the nose here, full of dried flowers, herbs and exotic spices as well as fruit. Very floral and absolutely beguiling. Quite a dark profile on the palate, with sweet black liquorice and soft clove to the fore giving a savoury tone rather than overt fruitiness at this point, but excellent texture and overall weight. You get the Pomerol power but also seductive qualities. I really like this. Michel Rolland consultancy."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Dark chocolate-covered plums and black cherries with roasted espresso bean overtones are all over here on the nose and on the palate. The wine finishes plummy with earthy nuances in the endnote. This is still the best deal in Pomerol. Drink from 2023-2035."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "Rich and muscular, the 2021 Feytit Clinet offers up aromas of cassis, blackberries, violets and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, it's a generous, structured Pomerol built around powdery tannins and lively acids."
WEINWISSER: "Würziger Beginn, zarte Rauchnote von der Barrique, Noisetteschokonote, etwas Zimt und blaubeerige Konturen. Am satten Gaumen mit cremiger Textur, sandigem Extrakt, nerviger Rasse und drahtigem Körper. Im gebündelten Finale Pflaumenhaut, viel Mineralik und mürbe Adstringenz, aufgerundet."
FALSTAFF: "Kräftiges Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Zart nussig-röstig unterlegte Kirschfrucht, ein Hauch von Tabak und Nougat. Mittlerer Körper, dezente Fruchtsüße, präsente, gut integrierte Tannine, salzig, zart blättrig im Abgang, Gerbstoff im Nachhall."
