The holidays are a great time to bring in crowd pleasing, full-bodied and deeply colored red wines that coat the mouth with lush, silky fruit.

We found a delicious Saint Emilion Grand Cru laden with a mélange of red and dark fruit flavors that is so delicious.

Critic James Suckling gave this wine 95 Points calling Chateau de Ferrand, "Full-bodied, yet balanced and refined with beautiful, fine tannins and a fresh, vivid finish." He also noted the intensity and balance which led him to ask if this was Chateau de Ferrand's best ever? We agree that this is one fantastic bottle of wine!

Bordeaux has been on a roll with a trilogy of impressive vintages beginning with 2018. The abundant sunshine of the vintage resulted in an expressively aromatic wine of deep garnet color with abundant rich fruit framed with pliable tannins.

Chateau de Ferrand began in 1702 and was passed down through successive generations. Late in the 20th Century, improvements began to bear fruit. In 2010, the vineyards were replanted after an in-depth ampelographic soil study and adaptation of grape varieties to terroirs.

Cultivation methods were revamped and winemaking facilities have been re-imagined. Cellars have been modernized, vats adapted and increased in number to enable plot-by-plot vinification. These improvements allowed the excellent terroir to shine through and the wine's quality soared. Ferrand became classified as a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé which is a designation of quality awarded after an independent panel tastes the wine and inspects the property.

The wines from Chateau de Ferrand have never been better and the estate is capably run by Pauline Chandon-Moët and her husband Philippe Chandon-Moët.

If you're looking for a wine to share with friends and family, this Bordeaux is a great choice. We are thrilled to offer this delicious Grand Cru at the lowest price in the country!

JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS - "Very beautiful purity of fruit on the nose with currant, cherry, blackberry and dried lavender. Full-bodied, yet balanced and refined with beautiful, fine tannins and a fresh, vivid finish. I am impressed with the intensity and balance to this wine. Best ever?"
