Château Ferrande Graves Red (750ml)
Château Ferrande 2015 shows a deep, beautifully intense colour – almost black.
Red fruit on the nose with a smattering of warm, toasty notes and a hint of vanilla.
A smooth attack followed by a beautifully full body with powerful, elegant tannins. Very harmonious on the palate, leading to a good, long finish.
