Estate Notes

Château Ferrière 2006 boasts the style and class of Margaux, without having to raid the piggy bank – a boutique operation of just 8 hectares – and the Médoc’s smallest Grand Cru Classé. It was purchased in its original wooden case.

Ferrière’s ambitious owner, Claire Villars, has taken what was one of the Médoc’s greatest disappointments to dizzying heights of quality and value-for-money in just two decades. Benefiting from a great terroir, Ferrière produces elegant, silky wines of real finesse.

Reviews

“To say the quality of Ferrière has improved in recent years would be nothing short of a gross understatement; the standard of the wines has improved dramatically. Tasting recent vintages, they demonstrate a remarkable consistency…… Ferrière would appear to have undergone a metamorphosis; from a lacklustre wine found almost exclusively on French wine lists, to a real performer, all in the space of a few decades.

"Fresh and bright, with summer berry fruits here, presented in a clean and attractive fashion. Rather soft and low impact on entry, elegant and supple. It has fairly firm tannins evident in the midpalate, but there is a quite harmonious feel to it otherwise." thewinedoctor.com

“Deep, shiny crimson. Rather sumptuous, sweet nose in the, say, Pape Clément mould. Good freshness of fruit – very easy ‘pleasant’ wine.” Jancis Robinson MW
