2010 St-Joseph, La Source, Domaine Ferraton

St-Joseph, La Source, Domaine Ferraton
Classic acid-granitic St Joseph soils, from premium vineyards not far from Tournon, are the source of this finely textured white, encepagement honours shared evenly between Roussane and Marsanne. I have always loved this cuvée; there is a characteristic spicy note, gingerbread or cinnamon even, which adds interest to the well-manicured fruit basket.
Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer, February 2012

The re-emergence of Ferraton as a great producer has taken awhile, and for a year or so I felt that the quality of the wines actually merited greater plaudits than those hitherto garnered. That changed with the 2009s when a commentator who shall remain nameless, offered lavish praise, a praise which I suspect is equally merited with the excellent range of 2010s.Damien Brisset has some very well located vines and is now exploiting their potential with real skill.

100% Marsanne near Mauves, bottled last autumn. Quite ripe and herby on the nose. A little tight but this may turn out to be quite a steal? Not showing its charm at the moment.

More elegant and polished, with notes of powdered granite, strawberries and black cherries is the dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium-bodied 2010 St.-Joseph La Source.

If the turn around in quality of the Paul Jaboulet-Aine wines is the biggest good news story of qualitative improvement in the northern Rhone, what Michel Chapoutier has accomplished with Ferraton is a close second. This is definitely a name to be taken seriously, as Chapoutier has expanded the portfolio and continues to upgrade the quality across the board. Ferraton’s 2009s and 2010s are the finest wines made to date. There appears to be three levels of quality now being produced, beginning with the generic bottlings, to the single vineyard (or lieu-dit) offerings, followed by the top of the line, more expensive, limited production efforts called selections parcellaires.
