2020 Château de Ferrand  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

The wine opens with licorice, flowers, espresso, wet earth, smoke and spicy plum aromas. Supple-textured, elegant, fresh, refined and lifted on the palate and in the mineral driven, spicy finish, this is a big step up here in richness, depth and complexity. In fact, this is the finest vintage I have ever tasted from de Ferrand. 91-93 Pts

2019 Château de Ferrand  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

My second time with this wine, as either I, or the initial sample was off that day. Right off the bat, aromatically, this seems like a better wine. Now, I find flowers, espresso, smoke, bitter chocolate, plums and oceanic influences Medium-bodied, with elegant textures and good freshness to the ripe fruits and a strong sensation of minerality, the wine is forward and should be easy to drink with just a few years of aging. 89-91 Pts
