A red wine from Crozes-Hermitage with great generosity
A red wine produced exclusively from Syrah
in the Crozes-Hermitage
appellation, the Crozes-Hermitage Lieu-dit "Les Pichères"
of Ferraton Père & Fils
comes from a vineyard planted on a limestone subsoil with alluvial soils and large pebbles. The wine is first aged in oak barrels previously used for 2 or 3 wines for 8 to 10 months, depending on the vintage, before being stored in concrete vats for 6 months.
At tasting, the Crozes-Hermitage Lieu-dit "Les Pichères" 2016 of Ferraton Père & Fils reveals a crystal clear, deep ruby colour. Open and spirited. The nose develops sublime notes of ripe red berries. On the palate, it proves to be ample and rich, offering tasty touches of jammy red fruits. This wine stands out, finally, in its great generosity and length.
The main purpose of this commentary is to describe the general profile of the wine presented. It is therefore called into question with the natural evolution of various characteristics of the wine over time.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Now that it's in the bottle, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage Lieu-Dit Les Pichères looks terrific. It's medium to full-bodied, with a rich, concentrated yet supple feel and attractive flavors that combine sweet notes of plum and crème caramel with savory ones of mocha and black olive. Drink it over the next decade.
