Chateau Ferran 2010.

Medium ruby colour with a tight garnet core. The wine is plummy, fruity(red primarily fruited), ripe and soft. It is easy to understand with good complexity and texture, and is very pleasing and harmonious. This bottle is in its best window to savour now of medium palate.

Scores reflect well the style and value.

RP90. Sexy, lush and deep ruby/purple in colour, ripe, sweet notes of plums, black currants and cherries jump from the glass of this sleeper of the vintage. An undeniably endearing style of wine, generously endowed, plump and easy to appreciate, its evolved complexity and fleshy fruit make for a delicious yet classic Graves to drink over the next decade or more. Bravo. Edited.

NM92. A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped a 49hl/ha; the Château Ferran has a gorgeous bouquet of blackberry, dark plum and a touch of wild strawberry. The purity and definition is top-class. The palate is very smooth on the entry, the ripeness of the Merlot deftly contained, very harmonious and pure towards the blackberry, cedar and tobacco-tinged finish. This is not a long-term Pessac-Leognan, but it is beautifully crafted and offers much short- to medium-term pleasure. Edited.
