Ferraton Condrieu Les Mandouls

£48.15
Maison Ferraton was founded in 1946 by Jean-Orëns Ferraton, the scion of family of vignerons with a small holding in Hermitage. Expansion of the family business continued apace under his son Michel, who bought vineyards in St-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. In addition to this he established a high-quality negociant arm, producing superior wines from the length of the Rhône Valley. This bijou producer has long been a firm proponent of organic and biodynamic farming, with an increasing number of wines produced according to these principles.

Fermented with indigenous yeasts, half in stainless steel and half in foudre, then kept on the fine lees with occasional stirring for 12 months, with malolactic fermentation. It spends six additional months ageing in bottle before release, unfined. Beautiful clarity of jasmine aroma, while the palate is full-bodied but with a degree of energy and a mineral dimension that brings refreshment on the long, pure finish, even though the acidity is on the low side. Authentic, unforced and not overly oaked, this is a success for the vintage
