    June 7, 2019 - I have to agree with BRUSSLES 1049 - this wine was a disappointment. I feel I've had much better wines from Ferriere in the past however this one was thin and tasted almost watered down. There wasn't any depth and the nose was lacking. The first taste had an astringent character that was off-putting.

    Not the worst wine but I definitely had higher expectation from Ferriere.

    January 27, 2019 - Consistent with my earlier note, rather light, drying out on palate, something of a disappointment for the vintage and classification of wine. if tasted blind I would never have guessed this was a classed growth.

    June 3, 2018 - Still quite a deep colour. Cedary, high-toned nose (for which it was much praised in the 2006 en primeur campaign). Smooth but rather dry on the palate, there is not much fruit forthcoming and beyond a hint of liquorice, little in the way of complexity. It opened up a little over the course of dinner, but I don't think this will improve with keeping, so in the context of the vintage and classification of the wine, rather disappointing.

    November 20, 2016 - Aroma: floral, graphite, fruity
    Taste: juicy fruity with dry tannins, with a thinning finish

    Conc: enjoyable at 10years and still youthful but don't see a lot of structure for long term

    November 4, 2016 - The nose is fairly discreet, with notes of red currants. The palate is a bit more interesting, with notes of peppers, red currants, and a rhubarb finish. Acidity dominates the soft tannins on the finish as well, which is a bit surprising given the predominance of cabernet sauvignon in the blend. This may be an indication of a slightly inferior vintage?

    (Chateau Ferrière (Margaux)) An appealing presence of fruit, nicely defined, fresh, bright, with an ever-so-slightly crystalline character. Clean and just a little smoky. The substance of the wine has a slightly soft character, with a supple substance. There is nice tannin, good acidity, just not the vigour of some of the better wines, should come together to drink well, though.

    (Chateau Ferrière Margaux) Fresh and bright, with summer berry fruits here, presented in a clean and attractive fashion. Rather soft and low impact on entry, elegant and supple. It has fairly firm tannins evident in the midpalate, but there is a quite harmonious feel to it otherwise. Good.

    (Chateau Ferrière Margaux) Quite open an evocative, deep fruit, nutty, lots of style here. Nicely rounded character, soft and plump, with a decent peppery acidity. A ripe grip too. This is deeper and more interesting than many wines here today. Good style, and another success for Clare Villars.
