Chateau Ferriere Grand Cru Classe Margaux 2010
In the middle of the XVIII century, the property belonged to Gabriel Ferrière, illsutrious member of the court of Louis XV. It remained in the family until 1914, when it was sold to Armand Feuillerat, the owner of Château Marquis de Terme, another Grand Cru Classé of Margaux. From 1952, the property was rented and the operations were directed by Alexis Lichine. The wine was vinified at Château Lascombes. In 1988, the Villars family bought the vineyards and the Château, but the long term rent only ended in 1992. The family then took the operations of the vineyard and winemaking. With its 10 hectares of vineyards, Château Ferrière has the smallest property of the Grands Crus Classés in 1855. Today, Claire Villars-Lurton is at the origin of this revival. She works with the greatest fineness and succeeded to reveal in her wine the exceptional terroir of Château Ferrière.
Food Pairings for Chateau Ferriere Grand Cru Classe Margaux
A great vintage that will rub its big brother the 2009 without flinching. Its differs by its very right style. The nose expresses notes of raspberry, cassis and spices. The tannins are still firm but ripe and tasty. The wine has precision and a good length.
Notes: 18 months in frenc oak barrels (40% new)
