A Saint-Emilion grand cru that stands out for its elegance, balance, and beautiful maturity. Superb after a few years in the cellar! More info

A historic Saint-Emilion property, Château de Ferrand crafts a sage blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 30-year-old vines grow in a south-facing plot where the soil is rich in limestone and deep clay.
The domain uses sustainable methods in the vineyard, characterised by ploughing and an absence of chemical products. The vines are also pruned and stripped back by hand.
Once in the winery, the grapes are vinified parcel by parcel, and this begins in temperature-controlled concrete vats. After a partial malolactic fermentation in casks, the wine matures for a year in containers of around 50% new wood.
This cuvée has beautiful hints of purple and black in the glass. Its nose oscillates between intensity and sweetness, marked as it is by notes of ripe fruit and flowers. On the palate, it has a supple profile, held up by fine, delicate tannins.
This wine can easily be aged for a few years, and it should be enjoyed at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair beautifully with a refined meat dish like hare à la royale.

Château de Ferrand Grand Cru Classé (OWC if 6 btls)serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Gigot de sept heures et ses flageolets, Lièvre à la royale, Rognon de veau grillé.

    Information about domain Château de Ferrand (Saint-Emilion)

    The history of Château de Ferrand begins in the 18th century, and it has belonged to only two different families throughout its wine growing activity. Purchased in 1978 by famous businessman Baron Bich, the estate is now run by his daughter Pauline and her husband Philippe Chandon-Moët. They’ve been taking care of things since 2005, and together they’ve modernised much of the estate.
    Located on the limestone plateau of Saint-Hippolyte, the Ferrand has 32 hectares of vines surrounded by 10 hectares of biodiverse forest and land. 70% of the vines are Merlot, with 29% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon keeping them company. Their sustainable viticulture is confirmed by a Terra Vitis certificate, and organic conversion began in 2021.
    In the cellar, single-parcel vinification is prioritised and the wines are matured for 14 to 18 months, in a balance of new wood and used casks.
