Ferraton Père et Fils is a small family-owned business that operates independently but under the Chapoutier expertise and finance. Certified organic since 1998, they vinify each parcel separately in order to show the diversity of the terroir.
‘Les Eygats’ is located in the northern part of Cornas. Aged 14 months in 15% new oak, this is a classic full bodied, deep and austere red wine with complex aromas of blackcurrant, black pepper, licorice and minerals. Amazing length.
“… It has a liqueur of rocks-like minerality as well as layers of blueberries, currants, peppery herbs, graphite and licorice. Full-bodied, incredibly concentrated and stacked on the palate, with a finish that won’t quit, I just hope it shows this well from bottle! The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest lineup up of wines I’ve tasted from this team.” – 95/97 pts, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, December 2016
