"I continue to love what vigneron Philippe Bravay accomplishes from his estate in the northern part of the appellation, and his 2020 Chateauneuf Du Pape is another finesse-driven, incredibly beautiful expression of this magical region. Based on 85% Grenache, 5% Mourvedre, and the rest a mix of permitted varieties, it was partially destemmed and brought up in equal parts stainless steel and concrete tanks. It offers a huge perfume of ripe strawberries and red fruits as well as sappy flowers, garrigue, and Provencial herbs. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, balanced, incredibly seamless Chateauneuf du Pape with no hard edges, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. I'd be a buyer. This will put a smile on your face any time over the coming 10-15 years."

95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (November 2022)

Philippe Bravay has been the lead of Domaine de Ferrand since 1997, delighting wine enthusiasts with their Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes-du-Rhône offerings.

With a meticulous approach to winemaking, Bravay uses organic methods and minimal intervention to capture the terroir of their 17 hectares of vineyards. The estate's ancient vines, some dating back to 1904, produce wines of impressive complexity and depth.

Bravay's preference for aging in concrete tanks and old foudres instead of barriques, as well as avoiding racking or blending until bottling, brilliantly showcases the wines' unmasked purity and vibrancy.

Perhaps the most famous region in the world. The name means the Popes new castle. The first vines in the region were planted by the ancient Romans while Popes served their Papacy in the region of Avignon.

Grenache is the dominant variety, ripening is intensified through sun reflection off of round stones called galetes roules. Thanks to the Mistral wind blowing south from Dijon, the vines are cooled and protected from mildew, the wind is so intense it could blow the ears off a donkey. To prevent uprooting the vines are often staked down.
