2017 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1510197 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has a very vibrant and aromatic array of red fruit and flowers with attractive raspberries and red plums, as well as spiced orange and yellow-peach notes. The palate has a very sapid and assertive, red-cherry core with a brand of tannin that is so forthright and so pure and linear. This has power and focus and needs some time. Best from 2024. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape checks in as 90% Grenache and the rest 3% each of Mourvèdre, Syrah and Bourboulenc, with a splash of Cinsault, brought up all in tank. It has a deep, layered, powerful yet elegant style as well as notes of black raspberries, crushed violets, blueberries, ground pepper, and earth. With a rounded, sexy texture, no hard edges, fine tannins, and a beautiful finish, it's a fabulous wine in the vintage. Philippe Bravay is continuing as one of the most talented and passionate young vignerons in Châteauneuf du Pape. Located in the northern part of the appellation, he has ignored the trend towards special cuvées and continues to make a thrilling traditional Châteauneuf du Pape that’s always overflowing with Provencal charm and character. I was able to taste his 2016 from bottle as well (it was in barrel during my trip last year) and it’s unquestionably another brilliant, magical wine from this great vintage. Both the 2017 and 2018 are a step back, but not by much! Inner quote mark (8/2019)

94-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Shimmering magenta. Mineral-accented black currant, cherry liqueur, potpourri and exotic spice qualities on the impressively fragrant nose. Supple and expansive on the palate, offering deeply concentrated but energetic red and blue fruit, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and a refreshing jolt of bitter blood orange. Finishes with sharp focus, slow-building tannins and superb, floral- and mineral-driven persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A bit herbal on the nose, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape delivers flavors of strawberries, cherries and garrigue. A blend of 85% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, 4% each Bourboulenc and Syrah and 2% Cinsault, it's full-bodied, creamy and lush—a solid effort in an elegant, red fruited style unmarked by new oak. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2019)
