2018 Chateau Ferran Pessac Leognan
2018 Chateau Ferran Pessac Leognan Well balanced and well judged, this white wine is good quality, fleshy and gourmet, without being too much. It’s a touch soft through the finish but this offers plenty to enjoy. 40hl/ha yield. Nine months barrel ageing, with lees stirring.
Since Robert de Ferran, solicitor at the Bordeaux Parliament, who gave his name to this exceptional vineyard, and
Montesquieu, philosopher winegrower, owner of the domaine in the 18th century, this terroir has always produced red and white
wines which were then known as “ Premiers graves Martillac ”
The property has belonged to an old Bordelais family since 1880, and today the descendants of Joseph Beraud-Sudreau, Philippe
and Ghislane Lacoste, have been managing the estate since 1999.
A lot of work has been done in recent years to restructure the vineyard and renovate the cellars which has quickly resulted in
numerous medals and good scores given by French, British and Amercian wine writers, particularly during the future tastings.
The work in the vineyard: debudding, deleafing, green harvest, hand picking parcel by parcel, sorting at the vineyard or in the
cellars, enables the selection and assembling of the best batches during the elevage for the Château Ferran, and the blending of a
more supple second wine under the name of Château de Belloc.
