Chateau Haut-Ferrand Pomerol 1998

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/38072 for£36 for two bottles.Pomerol is a commune in the Gironde Department close to the town of Libourne.It is the smallest AOC in Bordeaux at only 2000 acres.The 'satelite'appellation of Lalande de Pomerol is larger but a lot less prestigious.The grapes for Haut-Ferrand come from an amalgamation of several plots aquired by Chateau Ferrand since 1970 and it is not a second wine.It consists of 65% merlot and 35% cabernet franc and is aged for 18 months in oak barrels.I enjoyed my bottle last night as an accompaniment to my dinner of lamb chops.There is plenty of blackberry,liquorice,blackcurrant and plum style fruit there and the tannins were fairly soft although this is a well structured wine.
