Cornas Les Grands Mûriers, Ferraton Père & Fils 2015


Rated 'Exceptional' - 98 points - Decanter Magazine Northern Rhone Panel Tasting!

Ferraton Père & Fils has really taken off since Michel Chapoutier started consulting here, bringing biodynamic farming practices and small parcel selection to this grand old domaine (established in 1946). Their Cornas 'Les Grands Mûriers' 2015 is a wine that has just been rated 'Exceptional' by Decanter Magazine, who suggest hiding it away in the cellar for at least 5 years, but because we only have magnums, which mature at a slower pace than regular bottles, it might be worth waiting an extra year or two on top of that. 13.5% alc. Drink 2023-2035.

Press reviews:

Decanter Magazine Northern Rhone Panel Tasting: Rated 'Exceptional' - 98 points

Gearoid Devaney MS (Decanter): "A classic Cornas that is brimming with ripe fruit and delicious spices. There is a beguiling blood-red meat and iron element here and great energy and tension from the tannins. It needs time, but the finish is long." 98 points

Simon Field MW (Decanter): "A traditional wine that is rigorous and magnificently unapproachable at present. It is tannic, firm and long. I am so pleased that this style still persists and flourishes - bravo!" 98 points

Matt Walls (Decanter): "Dense herbal and smoky aromatics unfold elegantly onto a full-bodied, powerful and lush palate. It is full of plush fruit and muscular, thunderous power in an old-school style. There is a lot to enjoy here all the way to a long finish lengthened by fine tannins and piercing acidity. 13.5% alc. Drink 2022-2034." 98 points


The Wine Advocate: "Another no-brainer purchase is the 2015 Cornas Les Grands Mûriers, and this is the first time this cuvée has incorporated 15% whole clusters. Its black/blue colour is followed by lots of pepper, saddle leather, black fruits and crushed rocks, and it has fabulous purity, ripe tannin and nicely integrated acidity. Again, short-term cellaring will be the name of the game." 93 - 95 points
