2015 Château Ferrande  (Graves) 88

Open, soft, forward, early drinking, red cherry, tobacco and smoked filled, medium-bodied charmer that should be consumed over the next 6-8 years. Not a lot of depth, but it's quite nice to enjoy today.

When to Drink Chateau Ferrande, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Ferrande can be enjoyed on the young side with decanting. Young vintages can be decanted for about 1 hour. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Ferrande offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 4-8 years of age after the vintage.
