    my post code YO32 5XU.

    1. Hello Mr Hall,
      I’m assuming you’re referring to the online exclusive Pomerol parcel of the Domaine du Rempart and the Chateau Ferrand? If so, I’m afraid it all sold out. If this is not the case, please contact the York branch directly on 01904 659191 who will be very happy to help.

    1. Brian, we have plenty of clarets in their original boxes. The best bet is to contact your local store and they will able to tell you what they have available at the price point you’re looking at. If you’re after something really special, I would suggest looking at our Fine Wine range of Bordeaux as the majority of these come in their wooden boxes too and these can be ordered online.
