Background :
Château Feret Lambert is a newly created estate located in Grezillac, in the center of the Entre-Deux-Mers region. Costes du Château Feret Lambert is the second wine of the estate. The estate is owned by the dynamic Mr. Feret, one of the leading wine brokers on the Right Bank of Bordeaux and instrumental in discovering many of the up and coming producers in lesser known appellations, and his partner Mr. Lambert, a winemaker who owns estates in St. Emilion. They found this exceptional limestone quarry and determined that the soil was perfect in order to produce exceptional, intensely fruity merlot based wines. Production is very small. The first vintage was in 2001. Feret Lambert is rated nearly every year by the Wine Advocate. Famous oenologist Pascal Poussevin, is consultant to the estate.

Winemaking:
Double-sorting of grapes, with cold maceration for optimum extraction of fruit flavors. Fermentation in small stainless steel vats and temperature-controlled concrete to respect the terroir and the different maturities of the varieties. Extraction by punching and pump-over. After fermentation and warm maceration, the wines are drained off with their fine lees. One part undergoes malolactic fermentation in new barrels. Aged 15 months in barrels (30% new) of French oak, in natural limestone quarries located in our vineyards. Bottling and storage at the château.
