Domaine Ferraton – La Tournée Rouge 2017
La Tournée refers to the delivery round of wines by the domaine; therefore the first delivery car of Ferraton is featured on the label (you can still see it at the reception at the domaine). But La Tournée also means ‘giving a round’ so treating your friends to a glass of wine. That is what this friendly wine aims to do; connecting people in an informal setting with nice food and nice wines.
The vines for this wine are located on clay and calcarous hillsides, in the Herauld and Gard area, in de Languedoc in the south of France.
60% Syrah, 40% Grenache
Color: Red, dense, clear with deep purple glints
Nose: Powerful, complex, spicy, and red berry notes
Taste: Powerful, structured attack with a tinge of silky tannins. Red fruit aromas, medium body with a smooth finish.
This bistro-style wine is excellent to drink with a beef burger and other barbecued meats.
About the wine maker
The land and the people who tend it share the same history. A history which grows from generation to generation. At the origin, one man, Jean Orëns Ferraton. Vigneron, and son of a vigneron. A region basked in sun, the Rhône Valley. It was 1946.
Michel, his son, inherited the same passion. He decided to give a new dimension
to his father’s vineyards. The first Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph
Ferraton were brought into the world. A close friend of the Ferratons’, Michel Chapoutier brought his know-how. In 1998, the vineyards were converted to organic viticulture, then certified, before embracing the culture of bio-dynamics. Nowadays Damien Brisset is responsible for winemaking and vineyard management.
