Haut Ferrand is comprised of several plots of vineyard located near the church of Pomerol and purchsed in the 1970s by Chateau Ferrand. The vineyards are 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. We tasted this value in December and ordered it on the spot. Very sweet and lush on the palate. Ready to drink tonight. Blackberry fruits abound. Enjoy a Pomerol that is affordable.

Plush, silky, soft and ethereal in nature, this wine really sneaks up on you. The palate is caressing with blueberry fruit, cedar, smoke and an iron tinged minerality on the tannin free finish. Great for drinking tonight.

Owned by the Gasparoux family, who also own the more well-known Chateau Ferrand. Not a second wine but, since 1970, a separate property assembled from various parcels situated around the church of Pomerol. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Well-priced, traditionally-styled Pomerol. No garagiste excesses of overripe fruit or new oak here. Ripe red fruits of red currant and plum followed by lovely, savory notes of cedar and truffle. Wonderful weight – rich, round, and mouthfilling. Elegant and refined with great presence. The perfect pairing for grilled duck breast. Already showing the strength of this 2000 vintage, this wine will continue to improve for many years to come. Drink or hold.

Really drinking well right now, but you know it's going to last another 5 to 10 years easy! I wish we had more great Right Bank deals like this to offer because we get a little Cab-centric at K&L. Experience the red fruit, fine tannins, and incredible depth from the 2000 Ferrand and try to tell me you don't like Merlot!

A delicious, fruity, and powerful (but not overpowering) Pomerol. I happen to be a big fan of cabernet franc, and the 20% in this wine shows. The wine was mild when opened, but given 1.5-2 hours to breathe, and this wine really shines. The flavor sits all over the mouth, with ripe fruit everywhere. Had this on the same night as some 2004 ridge, and the ridge could not hold a candle to it. It seemed chalky compared to the pomerol. A wonderful buy and great year and great wine to boot!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
