Description

Château de Ferrand Grand Cru 2010

Saint-Émilion

Wine Making: The harvested fruit is sorted in two stages, first by hand and then with an optical sorting system, before the grapes are gravity-fed into vats. The vats are of various capacities so that the fruit from each plot can be processed individually, ensuring maximum traceability. The fruit from each batch is vinified and matured separately with the same attention to detail.

About Winery:
The history of Château de Ferrand dates back to the 17th century and was forged in the grand tradition of the Bordeaux wine-growing estates, those that helped the region gain its illustrious reputation.

Like all the Grands Crus of Bordeaux, the estate has experienced periods of great prosperity – Louis XIV’s court flocked to Ferrand renowned for its parties – and much quieter periods. Mademoiselle de Scudéry, the French writer and close friend of Elie de Bétoulaud, spent time at Ferrand working on her poetry.
