A classic Rhone blend with Syrah and Grenache; nice meaty structure with dark and red fruits. Supple tannins make this wine very smoothly drinking.
La Tournée refers to the delivery round of wines by the domaine; therefore the first delivery car of Ferraton is featured on the label (you can still see it at the reception at the domaine). But La Tournée also means ‘giving a round’ so treating your friends to a glass of wine. That is what this friendly wine aims to do; connecting people in an informal setting with nice food and nice wines.
The vines for this wine are located on clay and calcarous hillsides, in the Herauld and Gard area, in de Languedoc in the south of France.
About the Wine Maker
Basement Finds! Some winemakers have hidden corners in the cellar containing wines that are unlikely to have been kept for that long. But under these ideal conditions apparently 'simple' wines can also last 30+ years. Don't expect ultimate complexity, but a fair glass of Burgundy with a nice age for a bargain price instead.
