Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92+

Wine Advocate

Incorporating fully 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2021 Ferrière offers up notes of blackberries, licorice and loamy soil, followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and rather layered, muscular palate built around powdery tannins and lively acids. Still primary and unevolved, this is a promising effort that should continue to improve with élevage.

Neal Martin

The 2021 Ferrière has less Merlot, the 13% coming from a parcel planted in the 1950s from which they make a massal selection. Aged in 40% new oak, 40% one-year-old barrels and 20% amphorae, it has a well-defined, elegant bouquet of pure black fruit laced with pencil lead and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, fine depth and body. A Margaux doing a good impression of a Pauillac in some way, thanks to the 81% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fine persistence on the finish. Excellent.

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Ferrière is marked by a historically high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. That yields a Ferrière with notable strictness and energy. Red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal, mint and sweet spice all take shape in the glass. Pretty floral top notes reappear on the finish, adding lift. I especially admire the vibrancy here.

This starts out well with clarity of fruit and plenty of character. A sense of hidden power as the tanning build up, but with extra concentration comes clear austerity, and it will benefit from softening and widening over ageing. 13% press wine. on Ferriere, harvest September 16 until October 4. Historically low yields, after frost and poor fruit set.
