Chateau Ferriere 2018 - ex Bordeaux
*Please note this wine is part of a larger Lurton pre-arrival offer and stock arrival will take c.4 weeks.
The Estate was certified organic in 2015 and biodynamic in 2018. Château Ferriere is also the only Classified Growth to be twice certified biodynamic, by both Demeter and Biodyvin. It is one of the rare Classified Growths to be biodynamic certified, not only in its vineyard, but also in the cellar. To be so, Ferriere develops its own starter culture, avoids any input during vinification and limits the addition of sulfur to the strict minimum. 20% of the wine is aged in small ovoid concrete vats, developed by the property in 2012, and the biggest part of the ageing takes place in oak barrels. Born of this approach are wines that are more mineral, fresh and vibrant that fully express the terroir, without embellishment nor artifice.
