From an excellent estate taken over by Chapoutier in 2004, and with input from 5-Star winemaker Stéphane Ogier, this 94-95 point Hermitage has richness, power and concentration. 2018 was a top quality vintage and this red will age magnificently.
It means reserving the latest vintage before it is bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK up to 18 months after being reserved, depending on the region.
The advantages of ‘En Primeur’ buying
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn’t enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines – providing you are quick!
How does payment work?
Now you need only pay the ‘cellar door’ price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty – around £2.23 a bottle at today’s prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £12.60 per case per year).
After placing your order we will sent you a Reservation Certificate to your billing address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.
Beyond the Label
Very firm tannins, intense black fruit, spice, earth notes
Founded in 1946, Domaine Ferraton has always been a highly regarded estate. Yet since the Chapoutiers have come on board quality has rocketed. The Ferraton family started working with Michel Chapoutier in 1998, the latter buying the estate outright in 2004, but running it very much as an independent concern, with the family still at the helm. Oenologist Damien Brisset and the renowned Stéphane Ogier are also part of the domaine’s ‘super team’, and the result is some really impressive wines. Add in the 5-Star quality of the 2018 vintage and grapes produced to the highest biodynamic standards, and you’ll understand the sumptuous richness you can look forward to. Aged 50% in new oak, it is powerfully structured. A superb Hermitage to cellar.
"Full-bodied, powerful, and structured, it has loads of currants, black cherry fruits, tons of spice"
