Overview: Chateau Ferrière was founded in the 18th century by Gabriel Ferriere. He was a shipbroker and a King officer in charge of hunting. The vineyard was progressively enlarged by his cousin Jean, the mayor of Bordeaux in 1792. At his death, the property was sold by the court due to joint ownership and under age heirs. His widow, Marie bought it. She had three heirs : Gabriel, Michel and Rosa. In 1988, Jacques Merlaut bought the vineyards and the chateau but it was not until 1992 that the tenancy agreement with Chateau Lascombes came to an end and thus was born the first vintage produced by his daughter Bernadette Villars-Merlaut. Jacques Merlaut and his family were also the owners of Chateau Chasse-Spleen, La Gurgue and Haut-Bages Liberal. On the death of her parents, Claire Villars took over after her mother and since 2000 when the family properties were divided among the family members, she has fully managed château Ferrière, as well as Châteaux Haut-Bages Liberal and La Gurgue.
Tasting Notes: The nose expresses aromas of black and ripe berries (blackcurrant and blackberries) and floral notes. A beautiful freshness, neatness and aromatic precision. On the palate, the texture is harmonious, with wrapped and fine tannins. The fruit give a very pleasant style and accompanies the wine in its length. A beautiful classic vintage.
Pairing: Shepard's Pie, Balsamic Marinated Flank Steak
