Terroir and Bordelais originality
The concept of terroir is at the heart of winegrowing tradition. The terroir is an unusual place – its climate, pedology and traditions. It is situated at the crossroads of two paths, centuries old. A crossroads at which man and a cepage met, and have, ever since, been walking along together. Bordeaux wines’ originality stems from the ritual of cepages assemblages, which resume each year in the secret of our storehouses.
The Château Grand Ferrand is at the heart of the Entre Deux Mers. Its terroir is hilly and its soil clayey. The land is said to be, on the one hand, strong and hard to domesticate; on the other hand, loving as it clings and sticks to the feet of the ones who tread it. It is however, on this terroir that our Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Sémillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon vines flourish harmoniously, that they are harvested, vinified and carefully assembled into elegant, strong wines, inheritors of Bordelais Classicism.
