Château Ferran is located on the Haut Benauge plateau in the Entre Deux Mers and Bordeaux Supérieur appellations. A historic estate dating back to the 12th century, the château was originally known as Tucaou, which refers to the medieval buildings and forests that surround the vineyards. The domaine was purchased by the Ferran family in 1976 and has since become a leader in organic and biodynamic practices throughout the region. The family has been in the wine business for five generations, and owner and winemaker Julien Ferran’s father is one of the most respected and well-known biodynamic winemaking consultants in France. The vineyards lie in a relatively high elevation for the region, gently sloping towards the Saint Pierre de Bat stream that borders the estate and neighboring village. This elevation results in cooler summer temperatures, lending increased acidity and freshness to the wines. 40% sauvignon blanc, 40% semillion, 10% sauvignon gris, and 10% muscadelle, this delightful cuvée is spontaneously fermented in stainless steel with wild yeasts. Fermentation is temperature-controlled, and the wine is then aged on the lees for six months. (Fining is sometimes carried out with clay-based methods although this process is very rare.) A sophisticated sipper, full of zesty citrus flavors and lightly nutty overtones, and a stony, elegant finish. Certified biodynamic, vegan.
