Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Organic. 90% Grenache, 10% field blend. "The 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape from Philippe Bravay at Domaine de Ferrand hails from his four vineyard parcels in the northern end of the appellation. Half of the vines are now forty-five years of age, and these are the young vines in the cuvée! The other half are now between ninety-five and one hundred and ten years old! The cépages is principally grenache, with ninety percent of the cuvée comprised of this grape and the other ten percent a field blend from the very, very old vine half of the cuvée. The wine is raised in a combination of cement vats and stainless steel tanks and sees no oak, with de-stemming decisions based on the style of the vintage. The 2018 Domaine de Ferrand comes in listed at fifteen percent octane and offers up a deep and classic nose of raspberries, fruitcake, pepper, roasted meats, garrigue and a superb base of stony minerality from all those ancient vines. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and spicy, with a great core of fruit, superb soil signature, ripe, buried tannins and a long, complex finish that closes with just a wisp of backend heat. This carries its alcohol very well and should age quite gracefully, but it is a slightly headier version of the appellation." —93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #89 (September/October 2020)
