A complex and refined Crozes-Ermitage red wine by Ferraton

The estate

Since its creation in 1946, the Ferraton Père & Fils estate has become an emblematic reference for fine Rhône Valley wines.

For several generations, the Ferraton Père & Fils estate has been advocating a viticulture that respects both the vines and people and produces wines that highlight the potential and aromatic finesse of great appellations such as Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu.

The vineyard

The house watches over an exceptional vineyard that has been certified in organic farming since 1998 and Demeter in 2010.

The wine

The "Le Grand Courtil" wine from Ferraton Père & Fils comprises a selection of parcels from vineyards located in the Crozes-Ermitage appellation. This wine is made from over 20-year-old vines and rests on clay-limestone soil on the lower part of the slope, and granite and gravel on the upper part.

Vinification and ageing

Following the harvest, the grapes are completely destemmed. The wine is vinified in concrete vats for around 4 weeks, with pumping over and punching down to encourage optimum extraction. The wine is aged in oak barrels - 20 to 30% of which are new - for 12 to 14 months.

The blend

Ferraton Père & Fils' Grand Courtil 2017 is a 100% Syrah.

Le Grand Courtil 2017 by Ferraton: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Clear, with an intense ruby colour.

Nose

The nose blends fragrances of very ripe red berries with hints of leather.

Palate

The palate is long and reveals aromas of jammy red fruit and vanilla wood. The tannins are tight while maintaining a great finesse.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Aged entirely in barrel (15% new), the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Le Grand Courtil shows a hefty dose of smoke, baking spices and pencil shavings at the moment, although there's a solid core of cassis and blueberry fruit. It's full-bodied and concentrated, so give it a year or two to better integrate the oak and soften the dusty tannins on the finish, then drink it over the following decade.
