94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Biodynamic from this vintage, Ferrière is closely associated both through family and vineyard practices with Durfort-Vivens. With dusty tannins and beautiful black-currant fruits, this wine is both rich and juicy, finishing with crisp acidity. Drink from 2024. Alcohol 13.5%. (Feb 2018)"
94 points (17/20) La Revue du Vin de France: "Don't miss out on the last few vintages that have enabled this wine to climb a few steps. 2015 has an upright palate, still a little tight, but with breed and above all a very interesting length that keeps the wine bright. (2019)"
94 points James Suckling: "This has an array of very assertive dark berries and plums with graphite and cedary oak. The palate is more muscular here. More assertive firmness to the tannins. Give it time. Try from 2023. (2/2/18)"
92+ points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): "The 2015 Ferriere was quite backward on the nose at first, gradually opening with black cherries, blueberry and violet aromas that are straight down the middle Margaux in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, fresh and poised with a spicy, quite peppery finish that feels both elegant and long. This is an impressive Ferrière that is one of the estate's high points in recent years. Drink: 2021-2040. (2/28/18)""
92 points Jane Anson (Decanter): "Fairly closed on the nose, followed by some earthy aspects on the attack - it is markedly less overworked than some. You feel there is land here and the grapes come from it, not just piped in by glove-wearing beauties. There is tension and grip on the finish, and a joyfulness to the Cabernet-dominated black fruits. Certified organic, the estate is currently converting to biodynamic certification. 40% new oak. Drinking Window: 2025-2040. (Nov 2017)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "This is solid, with brambly grip running in lockstep with a solid core of plum and black currant preserve flavors. Shows ample energy through the finish, where alder and tobacco notes check in. Not as dense as the top examples, but delivers terrific fruit and expression. Best from 2020 through 2030. (3/31/18)"
