After spending 12 months in oak, this Crozes Hermitage has still plenty of red fruit and blackcurrant aromas on the nose. The palate is intense with ripe red fruit flavours and smooth tannins.
French still red wine from North Rhone Valley France, made with Syrah.
Continuing the work of his father Frédéric Reverdy, Jean Orens Ferraton created his own vineyard in 1946 in the Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage appellations. In 1998, vineyards were converted into organic farming, and selected parcels were vinified separately in order to show the diversity of the terroir. They are now moving to biodynamic culture. Today, Ferraton Père et Fils is a small family-owned business that operates independently but under the Chapoutier expertise and finance.
