The fruit from each batch is vinified and matured separately with the same attention to detail.

Château de Ferrand Grand Cru 2015
Saint-Émilion 750 ml
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.
An outstanding vintage with great ageing potential.
Available in 375ml, 750ml, and Magnum 1.5L
