Chateau Ferriere 2002

92 points

Margaux, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Bottles like this make be a big fan of this Chateau.  And of Margaux.

Gorgeous aromas of berries and hints of savoury characters like iron and gunpowder.  The palate is fresh, with the elegant lively acidity that marks Bordeaux apart from many other regions.  Elegance with power, a top wine from the vintage which I suspect is adding a bit of weight over the few years it has had in bottle.

Not quite as profound as the 2000, but very good nevertheless.
