The property is named after its 18th century founder Gabriel Ferrierie whose family owned it for generations..One can't miss the Chateau Ferrière vineyards. They are behind stone walls right at the heart of the village of Margaux. There are other plots of land, which slope gently down towards the Chateau Margaux plots, which rise up a ditch further away. From the Chateau which is at the end of the park walkway, the famous "pavillons rouges" mark the limit of the Premier Cru vineyards. With its eight hectares, Ferrière is the Medoc's smallest Cru Classé. The soil is composed of very deep Garonne gravel on chalk marl. It is said in the Medoc region that the vine plants should suffer! 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot express their suffering for the pleasure of connoisseurs worldwide. In 1988 the chateau was bought by Jaques Merlaut who already owned  Chateau Chasse-Spleen.Since 1992 huge efforts work and exigence wise have been made at Ferrière, and this wine has surprised professionals by the celerity with which it has come back to the top.It is now run by his daughter Clare Villars. In addition to the grande wine there are two second wines made from  the younger grapes .La Dame de Ferriere and Les Remparts de Ferriere Read less

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/104037 for £19. Margaux is an appellation created in 1938,although there has been viticulture here since the Romans,for red wines from 5 communes around the village of that name on the eastern side of the Medoc peninsular about 15 miles north of the City of Bordeaux.It is the largest appellation on the Medoc peninsular and the home of 21 cru classe in the 1855 classification,one of which is Chateau Ferriere as a third growth.At only 8 hectares it is the smallest of all the classed growths.My bottle consists of 60% cabernet sauvignon,30% merlot and 5 % petit verdot and was aged in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast pork.My first impresion was how soft and smooth it was although it was also beautifully structured.There is a blackcurrant,blueberry and vanilla style fruit with a hint of cigar box or smoke.In short this is a beautiful and also delicate left bank claret.
