Domaine de Ferrand, led by the passionate Philippe Bravay since 1997, is renowned for its exceptional Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes-du-Rhône wines. Bravay's meticulous approach to winemaking, favoring organic practices and minimal intervention, aims to authentically express the unique terroir of their 17 hectares of vineyards. The estate's old vines, some planted as early as 1904, yield wines of remarkable depth and complexity. Bravay's non-use of barriques, preference for concrete tanks and old foudres for aging, and avoidance of racking or blending until bottling highlight the purity and freshness of the wines.
Domaine de Ferrand's wines, particularly their flagship Châteauneuf-du-Pape, are celebrated for their silky texture, vibrant fruit flavors, and ability to age gracefully. The careful blending of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, along with the strategic inclusion of whole bunches during fermentation, adds complexity and structure.
