Estate Notes

Château Ferrière 2008 was purchased in its original wooden case and 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.

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

"This is almost sleek for the vintage, with dark plum, currant and cocoa notes that show a racy edge, as graphite and iron flash underneath. There's persistent fruit and well-rounded flesh on the finish." Wine Spectator

“Bright, medium ruby. Pure nose offers raspberry, violet, licorice and spicy coffee. A suave midweight with captivating red fruit flavors complicated by a lightly peppery quality that carries through to the youthfully tannic, minerally finish. Not especially fleshy, but already quite inviting. In fact, this is one of the better Ferrieres in recent memory at this stage of its development, and should be a candidate for early drinking.” Ian D-Agata
