2005 Chateau Ferriere, Margaux
Vintage : 2005
Country : France
Region : Margaux
The Winter was cold, very dry and unfavourable to the development of diseases. There was little rain. The budbursting and the flowering were quick and regular due to a hot and dry weather; especially during Summer when the recorded rains were less than normal. The vegetal growth was steady and early. The vineyard was particularly healthy. This excellent ripening favoured the concentration of sugar and of phenol compounds. In spite of an early deficit of water, the vine was able to extract from the deep gravels soil the necessary water for its harmonious development.
The 2005 vintage has produced a wine with an outstanding balance. The beautiful color is purple, dark and shiny. The nose is still very reserved and elegant with notes of black fruits and blond tobacco. The palate is powerful and structured, giving the impression of a great freshness. The final is long and elegant. The powerful and structured mouth leaves an impression of freshness. The finish is long and elegant. We feel the potential to come. To drink between 2014 and 2030.
