Personal Note from David
Château de Ferrand (opened in 1702) is my personal favorite vineyard in the famous Bordeaux region of Saint-Émilion. I have visited multiple times, each time bringing friends from home or Fat Tire Tours staff. No one has ever left disappointed.
In fact, this was the first wine I imported to the USA, and the genesis for David's Wine Cellar. I make this order once a year in time to arrive for the colder fall and winter temperatures. It is an excellent wine to accompany hearty winter meals, around a camp fire, or in the mountains. In short, I love it - and so do many of our friends.
The wines listed on this page are from 2006 - 2011 when the Château earned the mention of 'Grand Cru'.
In 2012 the Château earned the mention of 'Grand Cru Classé'. This is the highest rating possible, and their 2012 - 2016 grand cru classé vintages are listed here.
The Château also has an excellent second production called 'Le Different' that is intended to be consumed at a younger age. Their 2016 - 2017 Le Different vintages are listed here.
From the Château: Beautifully intense ripe fruit shines through in its color, then toasted and black fruit notes predominate on the palate. It is dense in the attack, with well-integrated tannins and an elegant finish.
