Château de Ferrand
Château de Ferrand is 42-hectare family estate (of which 30 are under vine) located on top of the Saint-Hyppolyte hills. Since the 17th century, it has had only two owners and this extraordinary stability underlies the spirit of Château de Ferrand and its wines.
The quest for excellence and respect for the vine, the wine and the consumer is the motivation that stands behind the tradition of aging wines that inspires the team at the Château. Vintages are only offered for sale directly though a network of wine merchants around the world after a minimum of five years of aging.
2015 AOC St. Emilion Grand Cru Classé
79% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
A powerful wine with great balance, maturing nicely. An expressive vintage with dominant red fruit aromas, good tannic structure and very harmonious; this wine is enjoyable now or can be kept to age for many years. A must for lovers of rich, opulent wines. A pleasing wine which goes very well with all styles of cooking and particularly well with spicy dishes such as curried chicken or shin of veal with “piment d’Espelette” and morels.

2012 AOC St. Emilion Grand Cru Classé
77% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc & 9% Cabernet Sauvignon
The château’s first classified vintage! 2012 has an intense, very deep crimson appearance. Its nose pairs toasty oak with black fruit such as blackberry. On the palate it offers up the signature of a sunny vintage, very rounded in the attack and development with well-integrated tannins. However, it is prevented from tipping over into excessive jamminess by a freshness that supports the whole wine and brightens the finish. Enjoy now.
