2016 Ferraton Pere et Fils Crozes Hermitage La Matiniere

2016 Ferraton Pere et Fils Crozes Hermitage La Matiniere

This is the kind of French import we should be shouting about to the rooftops. Ferraton is the side-project of Michel Chapoutier, and is one of the rising stars of the Rhone Valley.

DESCRIPTION
  • A beautiful Crozes-Hermitage from Ferraton. Wonderfully elegant, but still retaining the intensity of fruit and gamey, meaty notes that the region is famed for.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    100% Syrah. Farmed from terraces of glacial alluvial deposits with a lot of round pebbles, stones and gravel in the districts of Mercurol and Beaumont-Monteux. Grapes are destemmed. Maceration for about 20 days. Extraction made by pumping over and punching down. Matured in oak barrels and vats for 12 months before bottling.

    TASTING NOTES

    Intense cherry-red colour. The nose shows red berries and blackcurrants. Quite aromatic on the palate with ripe red fruits and violet notes. A rounded mouthfeel with smooth tannins on the finish.

  • REVIEWS

    'Succulent black cherry fruit, toast, meat and violets – this has loads of expressive perfume. Well-balanced tannin and acid on the palate, and long persistence. Despite the extravagance of the nose, it retains a sense of subtlety through the finish.'
    16 / 20 Points - Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com

    'Earthy, fresh mushrooms and blackberries with a swathe of bright, ripe, red plums and cherries on the palate. Crunchy. Drink now.'

    89 Points - James Suckling

    'Forward and fruity, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage La Matinière blends cherries with hints of tar and black olive. Medium-bodied, it boasts silky tannins and a long finish. Drink it over the next 5 years.'
    88 Points - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
