Food Pairings for Ferraton Père & Fils Cornas les Grands Muriers
Son of a wine producer and a wine producer himself, Jean Ferraton founded his own vineyard in 1946 in the Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage appellations together with his father-inlaw, Jean Reverdy. He passed on his passion to his son, Michel who developed the estate by extending the vineyards and adding the current premises in Tain L’Hermitage. In 1994 his own son, Samuel Ferraton took over and has continued the family’s art of wine-making, preserving the knowledge and learning that have been handed down to him. As a result all of the estate’s vines were converted to biodynamic viticulture and the wines became organically certificated. This was combined with the continuation of hand-picking and traditional vinification techniques. The philosophy and style of the wines continue to be dictated by Samuel Ferraton. Côtes du Rhône Samorëns Rosé is a deep salmon pink, and gives off potent aromas of fruits of the forest. This Rosé is very fresh with lively acidity, medium body, rich strawberry fruit and a pleasingly ripe yet refreshing finish. Enjoy this wine in the summer months, chilled, and served with seasonal fruits or crabcakes with fresh lemon and aioli.
Color: deep ruby colour with purple tints. Nose: very ripe fruit, raspberry and blackcurrant jam. Palate: blackberries, spices, morello cherries. Dense, concentrated tannins with good persistence.
