Château de Ferrand Grand Cru
Varietal: 77% Merlot 10% Cabernet franc 13% Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Making: The harvested fruit is sorted in two stages, first by hand and then with an optical sorting system, before the grapes are gravity-fed into vats. The vats are of various capacities so that the fruit from each plot can be processed individually, ensuring maximum traceability. The fruit from each batch is vinified and matured separately with the same attention to detail.
Color – Wonderfully deep
Nose – powerful and expressive
Mouth – qualities supplemented on the palate by a lively mineral freshness. The tannins are well-rounded and silky-smooth in the mid-palate, while never losing that precious freshness. Great length of flavor and aromatic power, the hallmarks of a truly superior vintage.
