Château Ferran, "Le Sans Nom" 2018, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Made by Julien Ferran of Château Ferran in the Entre-Deux-Mers district - see photo, above, of Julien in his deck chair.
The one good thing about terrible bottle labels is that they completely dispel any bias that you might have towards the wine behind them, and so it was with the "Sans Nom" 2018, a wine that I thought I would probably dislike from the moment that I saw its label.
But, as it turned out, wow! this wasn't just a great wine, this was a wine so brilliant that I completely forgave Julien for his labelling choice: Dense dark purple colour, quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics of rich and minty cassis amplified to maximum volume and yet with crystal clarity, and then a palate that is at the full end of medium-bodied and drenched with glorious tannin right through an impossibly long and juicy finish. This is a truly great expression of Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy over the next 5 years. Certified organic and biodynamic. Sans Nom 2018 is also made completely without the addition of any preservatives. Today's special pre-departure price is $29 per bottle in any dozen ($32 if less than 12 bottles ordered). Price will rise 20% to $34.8 once it arrives.
