Introducing the 2003 Ferriere Ex-Chateau 2021, a Bordeaux Blend that hails from the prestigious Margaux sub-region in Bordeaux, France. This remarkable red wine showcases an exquisite fusion of tradition and innovation, capturing the essence of its terroir and vintage with grace and finesse.

In the glass, this wine displays a deep, garnet hue that hints at its maturity and complexity. The aromatics are simply intoxicating, with an abundance of raspberry and blackberry jam wafting from the glass. As you delve deeper, subtle nuances of strawberry jam and vanilla emerge, adding layers of intrigue and allure to the bouquet.

On the palate, the 2003 Ferriere Ex-Chateau 2021 unfolds beautifully, offering a full-bodied and velvety texture that caresses the taste buds. The flavors of ripe strawberry and blackberry preserve dominate, providing a luscious sweetness that is perfectly balanced by a refreshing hint of acidity. With each sip, this wine reveals more of its intricate character, showcasing its remarkable depth and finesse.

While already delightful now, this wine has the potential to evolve and improve with further cellaring. Renowned wine critic James Suckling recommends waiting until at least 2012 to fully enjoy the mellowed flavors that this wine will undoubtedly offer. The closure, a traditional cork, ensures that this wine ages gracefully, allowing its complex aromas and flavors to develop over time.

The 2003 Ferriere Ex-Chateau 2021 is a true gem from Bordeaux, encapsulating the essence of Margaux in a single bottle. Whether enjoyed now or savored after a few more years of aging, this red wine promises a truly memorable experience.
