Other Reviews....
The 2016 Ferriere is an accomplished Margaux for the vintage. It has a feminine, refined bouquet with blackberry, wild strawberry and light rose petal aromas, just a hint of vanilla from the new oak that is neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, quite juicy tannin. This is very harmonious with fine tannin, impressive depth and a sense of mineralité that is in tune with this vintage. I thought that the 2015 Ferriere was excellent, but this is another step up. Bravo, Clare Villars Lurton!

Gentle-edged, with pretty plum and cherry paste flavors, lined with subtle cocoa and roasted cedar accents. Offers a supple, floral-accented finish.-J.M.

Wine Spectator

Tangy and fruity with spice and berry character. Full body, chewy tannins and a tight finish. This will fill out nicely in barrel. From biodynamic grapes.

From a vineyard that is now biodynamic, the wine has gained an extra dimension of fruit. At the same time, the tannins give the wine density that will stand it in good stead as it ages. This is for the long term.

Wine Enthusiast

The 2016 Ferrière is a deep, fleshy wine. Bold, and sumptuous, with terrific aromatic nuance, the 2016 comes across as wonderfully complete today. Dark tonalities of fruit, smoke, tobacco, licorice and grilled herbs are all pushed forward. Beams of tannin underpin the fruit, but they are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Expressive and layered in the glass, the 2016 Ferrière is a winner. Tasted two times.
