Chateau des Ferrages Esquirol Chapoutier Selection Parcellaire

Region: Cotes de Provence Sainte Victoire, Provence, France

Vintage: 2016

Bottle size: 75cl

ABV: 14%

Intense with red and black fruits (raspberry, blackcurrant), accompanied by notes of spice, menthol and chocolate. A powerful and well balanced wine with a round character and silky tannins. Fresh finish with ripe fruit notes.

Very stony sandy-clay soil on the surface and clay-limestone deep down. Parcels located in the village of Pourcieux at the foot of Mount Aurélien in a local area known as Esquirol. Mediterranean climate.

Cherry-picked by Mathilde Chapoutier Selection, the Château des Ferrages domain is in Pourcieux, halfway between Aix-en- Provence and Saint-Maximin, in the prime plots of the Sainte-Victoire appellation. The coolness of the weather is one of its blessings. Whilst rosé wine was already being made in this domain, hillside plots were quickly identified to produce red wine, and others still for white. Two Sélections Parcellaires have emerged from these lands, now applying biodynamic farming principles.
