According to a review from Emma Pook, Majestic Wine online store manager
‘Château Ferrand has one of the oldest vineyards in the region. The soil in the vineyard contains a lot of iron and that, combined with the 60% Cabernet Franc in this wine, gives it the highly characteristic taste of Pomerol.
The nose has wonderful leathery notes with aromas of pencil shavings. This follows onto the palate, combining with an earthy character, delicate cherry fruit and beautifully balanced acidity.
This is a wonderful opportunity to buy a mature Pomerol ready to drink this Christmas.’

Domaine du Rempart 2001
Emma Pook, Majestic Wine online store manager reviews this.
‘This exclusive Pomerol is produced by a small family-run property who make quality wines from 30 year old vines. This wine is made predominantly from Merlot, which has given it a fantastic damson fruit character.
As it has matured, it has developed an elegant dried fruit character and the use of oak during the ageing has imparted a lovely vanilla character to the nose. On the palate there is a beautiful balance between generous body and finesse.
A wonderful wine for Bordeaux lovers, and drinking beautifully now.
I think this wine offers exceptional value for a mature Pomerol and would make a perfect Christmas gift for anyone looking to treat someone special.’
