Reviews of purchase Chateau de Ferrand, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru AOC, 2013
The wine is a beautiful bright red color with a pink tinge.
Velvety texture in the taste of the wine is formed by the interweaving of thin, silky tannins. Fruit tones are supplemented with pure notes of minerals and fresh acidity in a long aftertaste.
The powerful, expressive aroma of the wine opens with pleasant notes of cinnamon and pepper, which precede the appearance of licorice tones and black fruit.
The wine is excellent with red meat, game and mature cheeses.
Chateau de Ferrand, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru AOC is a mature wine that is pleasant to drink to young people, but at the same time it has considerable potential for aging. Generous tannins in its taste are well integrated with fruit tones.
Harvested grapes are sorted in 2 stages: first by hand, then by means of the optical system. The berries of each batch are vinified separately. Then the wine is transferred to oak barrels for 12-16 months for aging, with 50% of the barrels being replaced annually. Parties are gradually collected in potential mixes, which are held numerous tastings. In February, the best of them is bottled and aged for some time in stable storage conditions.
Chateau de Ferrand was founded in the 17th century on the great wine-making traditions, thanks to which Bordeaux gained its outstanding reputation. It survived the heyday and oblivion. Throughout its long history, Chateau de Ferran belonged to only two families, one of which was the founders of the famous company BIC. He is currently managed by Pauline Bick Chandon-Moet with a team of local winemakers.
Work in the vineyards is carried out according to two principles: sustainable farming and ensuring high quality of the crop. Four different types of soil led to an individual approach to the management of vineyards. Methods are selected according to the unique potential and characteristics of each site.
