Description

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.

CRITIC SCORE:
92/100

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.
93+/100 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Tasted January 2019)

The 2016 Ferrière has a light but focused bouquet with a fine graphite seam that runs through the black fruit; light gravelly notes emerge with aeration. The nicely balanced palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, sage and spices and a solid, slightly sinewy (for a Margaux) finish. Very fine.
91/100 - Neal Martin
