Henri, Valérie & Olivier cultivate 13 hectares of vines at Chateau Feret-Lambert, which belongs for 4 generations to their family. The terroir is exceptional, with a subsoil of limestone, as in many terroirs of Saint-Emilion, on the other bank of the Dordogne. Henri, Valérie & Olivier are geared to excellence. Grapes are manually selected and the wine ages in oak barriques in the limestone quarries situated underneath the vineyards.
The Costes du Château, the 2nd wine of Château Feret-Lambert, is a Bordeaux Superieur, made of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for six months in twice used French oak barriques. The color is deep ruby. The aroma is a powerful and harmonious marriage of ripe black fruits and wood. The flavour is rich, fruity and balanced with a lively acidity, soft tannins and a long finish. A very pleasurable wine, great for the price.
Keep in cool room and away from light. Once opened, keep it in the fridge and drink within a week.

13% Abv (Alcohol by Volume) Still Red Wine
Costes-du-Chateau is an easy to open wine, nice to share for aperitif, with cured meat, salami and tapas. Thanks to its acidity it is a food friendly wine, equally at ease with hard cheeses, cooked vegetables and poultry.

We were on the road to St. Emilion, looking for great wines, when we met Valerie, one of three owners of Chateau Féret-Lambert on a cold and gloomy day of early February. The entrance of the estate was beautiful, with a long unpaved path surrounded by tall trees on both sides of the road and leading towards the ancient property. It was raining, but Valerie took the time (and the raincoat) to show us around the property, not caring too much about the awful weather. She is very proud of her vineyard and wanted to show it to us.
