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. Les Dionnières is a sublime, delicately nuanced Hermitage using grapes from a parcel of 40 year old organic Syrah, planted on sandy, clay and pebble soil. This lends real finesse and structure to the wine. 14 months in oak, 20% new, lets the fruit shine through with a measured influence of oak. With five years age, the wine has powerful intensity and complexity. Great with game or mushroom risotto.

"Sweet-spice edge and very assertive, mouth filling tannins, bathed in dark plum and black cherry" James Suckling
