Domaine de Ferrand Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A ripe, voluptuous wine that’s loaded with sweet kirsch, plum, licorice and garrigue aromas and flavors, Bravay’s 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a great example of the vintage. A field blend that’s close to 90% Grenache and aged all in tank (it sees no wood whatsoever), it’s a gorgeous, naked expression of Grenache that delivers medium to full-bodied richness, no hard edges and a supple, downright sexy profile. While it won’t make you run out and sell off your 2007s and 2010s, it’s a great wine meant for drinking over the coming 8–9 years. Drink now–2023.

Inky ruby. Dark berries, cherry pit, lavender and peppery spices on the fragrant nose. The palate offers appealingly sweet black raspberry and cherry compote flavors braced by juicy acidity and a hint of white pepper. Clean and focused on the youthfully tannic, strikingly long and urgent finish.
