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.
Le Grand Courtil is a single vineyard of gravelly and sandy soils with an average of 20 years old vines. Made with 100% Syrah. Very ripe red berry aromas with hints of leather. Full-bodied and jammy on the palate with delicate tannins and oaky notes.
... another killer wine. Blackberries, black raspberries, cassis, crushed herbs and gravelly, mineral notes all give way to a full-bodied, ripe, concentrated Crozes that shines for its purity and balance. Forget bottles for 3-4 years and drink it over the following decade. The only downside to these latest releases from Ferraton? They’re made in tiny quantities and there’s just not enough to go around.- 94 pts Jeb Dunnuck
