Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
90 DE / 88-90 JD / 92 JA /
Grippy and textured from the get go, with mouthwatering acidity. The focus here is on sleek but crushed-velvety textured tannins with the blackcurrant pastille, black cherry and raspberry fruit taking a beat and settling in the background. Minerality is on show in the slate and crushed stone flavours with some caramel and toast notes on the finish. Good potential here. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
The 2021 Château De Ferrand offers a riper, darker style in its plum and black cherry fruits as well as notes of tobacco and chocolate. It's medium-bodied, has nicely integrated oak, and a good finish. - Jeb Dunnuck.
Love the slightly tart but deeply textured feel that captures the clarity and austerity of limestone but widens out to a creamy mid palate with blackberries, redcurrants and spiced cloves. Will soften further over ageing, and has all the elements in place to be a thoroughly enjoyable wine for drinking within five to six years, and will last for a further decade from there. Mandarin notes on the finish. Axel Marchal consultant here, with harvest lasting from late September through to October 19. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux.
