Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2004

Since this once obscure Margaux Chateau was taken over by Claire Villars-Lurton it has gone from strength to strength. It has become a real favourite of ours and we are delighted with the 2003. The Merlot is planted on limestone, and it suffered somewhat from lack of moisture and thus the blend has 80% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a sumptuous wine, ripe, dense and dark with the polish and purity that we have now come to expect from Claire's skilled hands.

Producer

Château Ferrière

Ch Ferrière is undoubtedly one of the least known of all the classified growths. One reason for this may may be due to its size. It is tiny by Bordelais standards at only 8 hectares. Despite its Lilliputian measurements, its reputation superseded its size qualifying it as a Third Growth in 1855.

Region

Margaux, Red Bordeaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
