Chateau Ferran is located in the Pessac Leognan., Graves. This region is known for both red and white wines unlike most Bordeaux areas. Most famous for being the home of Chateau Haut-Brion. Being on the left bank, the predominant grape is Cabernet.
Chateau Ferran was a gift to me to sample. I was not disappointed and will accept gifts as these any time. Thank You. The nose emitted an air of old world mustiness. Not in an off putting way though. A typical aroma of wild ripe fruit that grows in the woods, berries of sorts, combined with an earthy truffle mushroom note. Yea, I know most of you are thinking WHAT? who would drink that, but believe me you will not be disappointed if you did.
The flavom hits you full force. Front and center comes that earthiness immediately on its heels, the berries. Rich and fruity. Black berry, currant, cherry, a bit of coffee and chocolate are noted too, are all combined to make this an overwhelming mind blowing experience. Slight hinders of cedar and smooth tannins with a long, long, long finish. Very well structured with all the planes of flavor evenly spread. A big dinner wine.
