    "The 2016 Ferran is medium garnet-purple colored and reveals beautiful red and black cherries, warm plums and mulberries scents with an earthy undercurrent and a waft of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, it has a wonderfully plush palate..." ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Ferran is medium garnet-purple colored and reveals beautiful red and black cherries, warm plums and mulberries scents with an earthy undercurrent and a waft of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, it has a wonderfully plush palate with bags of earth-laced fruit and a long minerally finish." Drink 2019-2031. Nov 2018

    Winery:  "Ruby red color, still young, with some violet notes, good intensity, limpid and brilliant, altogether a beautiful appearance. The nose has a friendly opening on a basket of small red and black fruits such as raspberry, strawberry, blackberry and cherry flesh. Then come notes of spices and a discreet touch of pepper. Mouthfeel is round and fragrant."

    The Ferran Wine Family: "Château Ferran St Pierre is an historic estate dating back to the 12th century. At that time the estate was known as Tucaou, a name which is still represented in the name of the higher end cuvees of the estate. Tucaou referrs to the medieval buildings and forests that surround the vineyard. The estate was purchased by the Ferran family in 1976 and became a leader of organic and biodynamic practices for the whole region. Owner and winemaker Julien Ferran’s father is in fact one of the most respected and well-known biodynamic winemaking consultants in all of France. The family has been in the wine business for over 5 generations."
