One of the least well-known classed growths of the commune of Margaux, the tiny Château Ferrière's 8 hectares are situated right at the very heart of the village of Margaux. After a spell as the second wines of both Châteaux Prieuré-Lichine and Lascombes, the Château is now standing on its own at last and is under the same ownership as Château Chasse-Spleen.
The soil here is classic Margaux with very deep Garonne gravel over Chalk Marl, the perfect soil for Cabernet Sauvignon. It is this superb terroir that led to the Château being awarded 3rd Growth Status in the famous 1855 classification of the Mèdoc. The vineyard is planted with 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
The wine is aged for sixteen to eighteen months in oak barrels, 60% of the barrels are new each vintage.
