Ferraton Père & Fils Cornas les Grands Muriers 2009
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.
Ferraton Père et Fils is a winery/negociant in the north of the Côtes du Rhône. Their wines are smooth, well balanced and very affordable considering the quality. Notably their Crozes-Hermitage "La Matinière" red and white and the St-Joseph "La Source", also red and white. For wines to lay down, look more towards the Hermitages and the single vinyard selection.
Editorial Reviews for Ferraton Père & Fils Cornas les Grands Muriers
This wine just crushed the Landonne, Earthy and leathery on the nose but without any dirtiness, in its stead just layered and pure raspberry with a lightly smoky, gamy adge, subtle sagy green herb notes a touch of green peppercorn. In the mouth this offers great intensity of flavor with dark strawberry fruits and a note of green peppercorn as on the nose followed by complicating noes of pressed flowers and nut oil. Elegant and bright in the mouth with fairly resolved, soft tannins and wonderful energy in the mouth that lead to a long, resonant finish. This is firmly at peak and just singing tonight.
nice bit of spice, black fruits and a cigar box aroma. a good dry wine lovely with a steak
Great with some artisan cheddar and salami. A nice Friday night wine!
Fresh fruits, white peppers and a lot of freshness. Looking for a clean and pure Syrah, this is definitely the type of Syrah I love. You can really taste the terroir and the fruit, this is not oaky. It's all about fruit and freshness. So clean and mineral, a MUST !!
Three and a half glasses
This was probably one of my favorite wines this year (or last year I guess). I expected a peppery-in your face type of shiraz I have had before. But this was the first time with a French syrah and I was blown a way. A very elegant, well balanced wine. An excellent drink. Oaky, a bit floral, slight herbal undertones,,,nothing offensive at all.
