Château de Ferrand 2006
Ageing; 12 Months in French Oak
Structure; Full bodied
Food pairing ideas; A great match for strong flavours such as rack of lamb with herbs or game birds such as wood-pigeon with a rich wine sauce.
Description; Expertise shines through in every silky-smooth glassful of this seductive red. Made from a blend rich in Merlot, this sumptuous red is beaming with ripe, red berry fruit. Packed with juicy dark-berried fruit it is smooth, soft and easy to drink. A wonderful window into the great wines of St Emilion.
Producer Profile; The Château de Ferrand in the commune of Saint-Hippolyte was built during the reign of Louis XIV. It was purchased by Baron Bich in 1978 and is now the property of his children, who have kept the estate intact and renovated the buildings while preserving their original architectural style. This pictureque vineyard covers 30 hectares. The average age of the vines is 30-years-old vines and they are planted to a density of 5,400 vines per hectare on a limestone undersoil on a bed of clay.
