    Château Ferrière

    About Château Ferrière

    Taking its name from the Ferrière family, a renowned player in maritime brokerage who acquired the estate at the end of the 17th century, Château Ferrière remained in the hands of the Ferrière family for more than 300 years, proudly earning its Third Growth status in the 1855 classification. It was subsequently acquired by the Merlaut family at the end of the 1980s and was eventually inherited by Claire Villars in 1992 upon the sudden passing of her parents. Today, Château Ferrière is managed by Claire and her husband, Gonzague Lurton, owner of Château Durfort-Vivens.

     

    Viniculture

    Formerly the smallest Bordeaux Classified Growth, Château Ferrière has since increased its acreage to well over 20 hectares of vines planted to 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. The average vine age is 45 years old and vineyards are planted to a density of 10,000 vines per hectare. Attaining both organic and biodynamic certification in 2015 and 2018 respectively, Château Ferrière produces harmonious and expressive wines that are certainly gaining a steady following.

    Ferriere 2005 (6x75cl)

    Wine Enthusiast (91)

    90-92 Barrel sample. Dark, dry and tannic this wine currently offers little in the way of fruit. The tannins are firm, solidly based and only hinting at the fruit underneath. It's a tough wine at the moment, but the structure will certainly see it into a good maturity.

    Ferriere 2015 (1x150cl)

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni (94)

    The 2015 Ferrière is terrific. Black cherry, plum, lavender and spice give the 2015 its super distinctive dark profile. Juicy and generous on the palate, the 2015 has developed into a very nice Margaux that plays on the darker end of the fruit spectrum. The 2015 is dense and powerful, but also impeccably balanced.

    2018

    Ferriere 2018 (12x75cl)

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni (94)

    The 2018 Ferrière is a powerful, tightly wound wine. Inky dark fruit, gravel, cured meats, graphite, smoke and lavender all run through the 2018. Readers will have to be especially patient, as the 2018 needs time to unwind. Yields are down from an average of 45 hectoliters per hectare to just 26, which no doubt contributes to the wine's natural intensity. The blend is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, in other words, the Cabernet Sauvignon is especially high, a recent trend here because of climate change. This is the first year in which a portion of the wine was aged in cement and amphora (20%), which according to Claire Lurton allows for lower SO2 in aging.

    Ferriere 2021 (12x75cl)

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni (92-94)

    The 2021 Ferrière is marked by a historically high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. That yields a Ferrière with notable strictness and energy. Red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal, mint and sweet spice all take shape in the glass. Pretty floral top notes reappear on the finish, adding lift. I especially admire the vibrancy here.
