Château de Ferrand 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

Château de Ferrand 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, aromatic, elegant and offers fleshiness as well as a fine concentration. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, cassis and small notes of crushed black berries associated with fine touches of liquorice, flowers, spices as well as subtle touches of chocolate and Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, suave, well-built, aery, elegant and offers a good definition, a fine acid frame, minerality, freshness, a fine unctuosity as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, crushed cassis and more slightly crushed strawberry associated with small/fine touches of toasted oak, caramelization, chocolate as well as a very discreet hint of vanilla (in the background) and a very discreet hint of violet on the background/ on the finish. Tannins are firm and slightly firm.
