A fine expression of an outstanding Graves terroir, Château Ferrande’s red blend leans heavily on the appellation’s two key grape varieties. A 50/50 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine’s fresh fruit aromas are beautifully underpinned by an elegant tannic structure. Vintage after vintage, the winemaking team remains faithful to what has become a winning formula, aiming to maintain the supple, sensual classicism associated with Bordeaux’s finest wines.
On the nose, intense ripe fruit aromas (especially cherry) are joined by nutty notes and hints of cocoa and liquorice. The boldness of the nose is confirmed in the mouth, with a supple attack giving way to an uninhibitedly fruit-forward, full bodied mid-palate. Minty notes on the finish reveal all the elegance of a distinguished Bordeaux red.
