79% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Chateau Ferrand vineyard is on the southern slope of the Pomerol plateau with 12 hectares planted. The wine is matured for 18 months in French oak barrels,one third of which are new.
Pomerol is by far the smallest appellation in Bordeaux and according to Hugh Johnson MW. the wines are usually distinguished by their deep colour and sometimes creamy,concentrated ripe-plum flavours but without the high acidity and tannins that are typical of other Bordeaux wines.
The 2015 Chateau Ferrand has an intense, deep red colour. The bouquet rolls out lovely ripe berry scents: blackcurrant, blueberry and cherry while aeration brings out floral notes.
The attack is ample and fleshy, with a nice, velvety balance in mid-palate. A long finish, with silky, elegant tannins.
An outstanding vintage with great ageing potential.
