Chateau Ferriére 3 cru Margaux 2014

Ferrière was one of the well-known families in Bordeaux who came back strongly after the French Revolution. Jean Ferrière was elected mayor of the city of Bordeaux in 1795. The family owned several castles in Bordeaux and retained the Château Ferrière until 1914, when it was sold to Armand Feuillerat, owner of the Château Marquis de Terme. His daughter, Madame Durand, made a long-term contract with Alexis Lichine in 1961, a contract that was later taken over by Château Lascombes. For many years the castle was called "Lascombes' little brother", no further uplifting nickname.

In all the unofficial classifications before the final one in 1855, Ferrière is mentioned as one of the best wines in Margaux. In 1988 the Villars family buys the castle and in 1992 the family takes over the vineyards that had been leased to Château Lascombes. With Claire Villars taking over the production, the wine grows in quality and in recent years with an increasingly clear fingerprint.

 

Year 2014 - 70% Cabernet Sauvignon of 30% Merlot Can be stored for 15-20 years.

Nice scent, black currant, light green leaves, smoky tone. Fresh taste, upright, full-bodied with ripe, marked tannin and long, smoky aftertaste. Perhaps the most harmonious wine from the castle ever.
