The 2022 Chateau de Ferrand (not to be confused with a similarly-titled Graves estate) was harvested from 5 September to 5 October at a respectable 44hL/ha. This is focused and fragrant on the nose with a red and black fruit mixture. Fig and espresso aromas in the background lend more complexity. Nice terroir expression. The palate is undoubtedly fresh on the entry with supple but fine tannins that frame predominantly red berry fruit laced with tobacco and black pepper. There is a convincing sense of build on the finish, completing a very promising Chateau de Ferrand. ~92-94 NM-VM
Smells intense and inviting. Smooth and supple on the palate, creamy, sweet, tangy and cool fruit enters the palate - blueberries, raspberries, cherries, and blackcurrants alongside clear minerality in the salty, liquorice, graphite, and flint edge. Tannins are so well worked, really precise and do so well to give the frame and the structure. The juicy core is lovely and this has some compelling aspects in the minerality, crunchy, pure fruit and just spiced clove, cinnamon and tobacco edges. Feels nicely complete with purpose. A touch sombre but I like the seriousness. Harvest 5 September-5 October. Yield of 44hl/ha. 3.65pH. ~94 Decanter
