External Reviews for Domaine de Ferrand Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape

External Review
Vintage: 2007 11/01/2009

An amazing effort, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape eclipses what I wrote about it last year. Every time I went back to it, the wine revealed more nuances as well as greater depth. Full-bodied and powerful, it exhibits a compelling bouquet of creme de ca... Robert Parker. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Ferrand, Domaine de Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml

This is seriously dark, with bittersweet chocolate, braised beef, fig, tar and ground espresso notes leading the charge, while dark plum and currant fruit wait in the background. Cuts a broad swath on the muscular finish. Very backward, with a ways to go, this has harnessed more grip than most in this vintage. Best from 2010 through 2030.

Very pure, with a big beam of raspberry and boysenberry confiture running through the middle, along with notes of licorice, violet and graphite. Long finish has deceptive grip. A producer steadily on the rise. Drink now through 2026.

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is certainly one of the stars of the vintage. Impressively deep ruby/purple-colored with a stunningly complex nose of roasted meats, incense, ground pepper, kirsch, and blackberry, the wine is deep, full-bodied, opulent, and very rich as well as pure. This is a seriously endowed, top-flight Chateauneuf du Pape that will be drinkable in 2–3 years and last for two decades.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of smoked game, jammy black cherries and blackberries, full body, some of the classic licorice, garrigue, and meaty notes along with superb texture, moderate tannin, and good acidity. This is a beauty that should evolve for 15 or more years.

Really sleek and focused, with a large core of plum and linzer torte fruit in reserve for now, while hints of mesquite, spice cake, black licorice and graphite flicker through on the finish. Dense and reserved, so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2010 through 2025.

One of the finest wines of the vintage is the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape, a true star and certainly one of the finest wines Philippe Ferrand has yet made. A dense saturated purple color to the rim offers up notes of seaweed wrappers from a sushi bar interwoven with licorice, blackberries, creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, and Asian spice. Superbly concentrated, with terrific purity and a full-bodied, layered palate with good freshness and definition, this is a stunner and can be drunk early or cellared for up to 15 more years.
