Château Ferrière 2016 is an absolute steal from a great Bordeaux vintage, and was purchased in its original wooden cases.

Château Ferrière is 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 fine red wines of real finesse.

"The 2016 Ferrière is a dense, full-bodied wine that is going to need at least a few years in bottle to shed some of its tannins. Old vines imbue the 2016 with a palpable sense of power and resonance that comes through in the wine's dark, somber personality. The tannins are equally imposing though, so patience is essential. Blackberry, smoke and gravel are some of the notes that build as the 2016 starts to open in the glass." Antonio Galloni

"The 2016 Ferrière is an accomplished Margaux for the vintage. It has a feminine, refined bouquet with blackberry, wild strawberry and light rose petal aromas, just a hint of vanilla from the new oak that is neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, quite juicy tannin. This is very harmonious with fine tannin, impressive depth and a sense of mineralité© that is in tune with this vintage. I thought that the 2015 Ferrière was excellent, but this is another step up. Bravo, Clare Villars Lurton!"
