Château Ferran "Les Côtes" Pessac Léognan 2014
93 Points Beverage Tasting Institute. Situated a stone's throw from the prestigious Château Latour Martillac, this impressive Pessac Léognan is a full bodied wine offering fantastic value for money and is one not to be missed. The wine is overseen by Pierre Hubert Gory, following his stints at Chateaux Latour and Beychevelle. On the palate this is medium-plus bodied with a gorgeous plush texture and lovely overall concentration. It continues to impress with its excellent balance of ripe fruit and acidity that keeps is fresh through the long, expansive finish. Delicious now, but will evolve nicely over the next decade. This wine is the definition of Fine Wine !

About the Producer
As one ambles to the south of Léognan towards the gates of Martillac, known for producing some of the finest grands crus of the region, one finds oneself next to the Domaine de la Solitude at Chateau de Ferran. Studies have been made upon the soils here to make sure that a perfect parcellary vinification is performed, and this led to the birth of the special cuvee “Les Côtes”. This particular parcel consists of tiny gravel upon a subsoil of clay and chalk. The yield is closely controlled and Philippe Lacoste would rather see a bunch harshly rejected on the ground than risk any green tannins in his wines. Harvest is only performed in the morning with rapid “cuvaison” to avoid any oxidation of the wine.
This stunning property was owned by Jeanne de Lartigue. The Chateau is run today by Ghislaine and Philippe Lacoste who became the directorial generation in 1999. They have worked to make their wine an expression of the superb Martillac terroir as Chateau Ferran strives to imitate the quality of its richest neighbours. The technical direction is now assured by Pierre Hubert Gory, following his stints at Chateaux Latour and Beychevelle. Since longtime the Faure family have emphasize the sustainable agriculture, refusing the using of pesticides, and that’s why the 2013 vintage become organic / biodynamic.
65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, dark garnet colour. Fruity aromas of cranberry, dark cherry, orange zest, plum, and toffee with a lightly tannic, lively, medium-full body and a charming, medium-long pomegranate, herbs de Provence, bay leaf, and earth finish with firm tannins and moderate oak flavour.
