Press around Château Malherbe

Guide Bettane et Desseauve 2023;

"Spectacular progress in recent vintages, the wines are to be ranked among the elite of Provence.

La Revue du Vin de France; October 2022; Alexis Goujard.

"This splendid property in Bormes les Mimosas has been given a new lease of life. The technical director has changed. The brilliant Burgundian winemaker Philippe Pacalet now gives his good advice, especially for this wine of grenache, mourvèdre, cinsault and a little vermentino, vinified in whole bunches and aged in barrel for a year. It is a rosé (or a light red, depending on our interpretation) that is full of colour, beautifully floral, with an intense perfume and a delicate texture, all in relief. A profile that we used to see more in the Rhone Valley, but which has its place for lovers of the great wines of Provence. Cuvée Mme Ferrari 2021.

Terre de vins, July 2022; Sylvie Tonnaire.

"The estate went biodynamic with the help of Jannick Utard from Alsace, then  Philippe Pacalet from Burgundy and Jean Laburthe from  Rhone. The Ferrari estate, in the former farmhouse of Brégançon, has adopted since 2020 manual harvesting with sorting on the vine in whole bunches and vinification with indigenous yeasts. It is now a selection of the oldest 80-year-old grenaches and 50-year-old cinsaults that go into the composition of this powerful and spicy cuvée on ripe yellow fruits, lemon and orange zest with a saline finish."

L'Epicurien, July 2022.

"The Ferrari family has watched over the fortunes of this now biodynamic estate for over 80 years. La Malherbe, superbly located between the sea and the mountains, was for centuries the farm of the fort of Bregancon, planted in polyculture. Harvested plot by plot , exclusively by hand, Château Malherbe has always been committed to producing wine using precise methods. The white wine has a pale color and a rich and distinguished nose, with beautiful citrus notes (grapefruit) and a mineral freshness. Well structured in the mouth, its beautiful volume is seductive, as is its airy finish with a slight floral sensation and notes of savory. The finish is greedy and ample, leaving a real impression of freshness. The rosé of Château Malherbe a luminous rose petal color with shades of salmon.  After aeration, the nose expresses itself in a pleasant and elegant way, with floral notes completed with spicy touches and more discreet notes of orchard fruits (apricot - peach). After a clean attack, the palate provides a sensation of balance  and freshness, with notes of almonds, gourmet. A persistent and seductive finish. The red is intense and bright ruby red. A beautiful aromatic palet of wild berries and spicy notes. The attack is straight, followed by a fruity taste  mouth , all  beautifully  balanced. A long and tasty spicy finish (pepper) with tannins still present."

The Good Life, July 2022; Sylvain Ouchikh.

"The 25-hectare property is close to the Fort de Brégancon. The vineyards of Pointe du Diable almost have their feet in the Mediterranean. There is nothing evil about the place, quite the opposite. It would be rather bucolic and would incite to daydreaming. However, work is a value here, because the owner,[1]        Sébastien Ferrari, wants wines with a real personality. The robe of this rosé sparkles. It has an intense nose of grapefruit and lemon. Summer is not far away. On the palate, the crispness of the fruit mingles with the freshness. There is tension in the air. The long, mostly saline finish reminds us that the gentle waves of the big blue are not far away."

Le Monde, June 2022.

"A beautiful pink color : yes, it is really pink, just attenuated by the presence of a little Semillon, a little white amongst a majority of Grenache. A very appetizing wine on the finish".

Le Journal du Dimanche, June 2022; Louis Victor Charvet.

"What progress this property has made in the last 10 years. Under the leadership of Sébastien Ferrari, Malherbe is rising to the highest level, especially when it come to the singular character of the wines offered. Vibrant and delicate rosés".

Le Figaro, June 2022; Pierre-Olivier Deschamps.

"A wine with a clear but luminous color, revealing a nose with aromas of lemon, grapefruit, spices and aromatic herbs singing of Provence, with some harmonious iodine notes.      

Paris Match, le choix Bettane et Desseauve; June 2022; Louis Victor Charvet.

There is something miraculous about this wine, and property. Malherbe has changed everything in just a few vintages and the results is surprising      . The most fastidious tasters are, for once, unanimous. It is clear to everyone, the Pointe du Diable rosé is a model of its kind; not a poolside rosé.

Bettane et Desseauve, April 2022; Hicham Abou Raad.

"Owned by the Ferrari family for several generations, managed by Sébastien Ferrari since 2007 and a direct neighbor of the Fort de Bregançon, Château Malherbe is a Provençal property of about 20 hectares divided into two distinct terroirs: la pointe-du-diable, on the seafront, is made of ancient silt laden with quartz which offers wines with a fresh and slight  expression of iodine ; malherbe, at the foot of cap Bénat, one of the clayey-schisty points located at the southernmost point of the Maures massif, is distinguished by a beautiful complexity, a great vivacity and a nice length in the mouth. Sébastien Ferrari called upon the talented Philippe Pacalet, who is known to make sulfur-free wines and from whole grapes. The 2020 vintage is the fruit of this collaboration. It marks a turning point and a real desire of the family to produce exceptional wines. The 2020 Malherbe Rosé is a blend of old Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes grown organically and biodynamically. It is characterized by a garnet red color, brightness and slightly tile-like nuances."

RVF November 2021; Alexis Goujard.

"This splendid property belonging to the Ferrari family has taken a stylistic turn away from the standards of the Côtes de Provence. With its Grand Rosé 2020, Malherbe is one step ahead. This graceful wine offers the Mediterranean complexity of a red and the digestive finesse of a rosé.

Sommeliers International Fall 2021; Florence Corbalan.

"Sébastien Ferrari [...] puts all his heart into making sure that nature continues to give its best and that the wines express this protected and living land. The bet is successful".

Les Echos Weekend; July 2021; Sylvain Ouchikh.

"This family estate has belonged to the Ferrari family since 1940. It faces the sea in a site of great beauty.

In all discretion, the vineyard is remarkably worked since it is in certified organic agriculture. We do not trifle with quality... ".

Magazine Vigneron - summer 2021; Birte Jantzen.

"If Malherbe wines have long been among the gems of Provence, 2019 marked a turning point. [...] Sébastien Ferrari decided to go further in order to move forward in total harmony with the terroir. The conversion to biodynamic viticulture is underway. [...] The approach is also more demanding in the cellar where the large vats are giving way to smaller containers allowing a plot by plot  work".
