Merlot-based blend

Tony Laithwaite's original Château de la Clarière lies in the little village of Ste Colombe, Castillon. Such is his belief in the supreme quality of this village's terroir that, since then, he has added Château du Bourg and Presbytère to the portfolio and, two years ago, Châteaux du Bois and de Colombe. With Stéphane Derenoncourt's Domaine de L'A next door, it seems he's not the only one to have conviction. The two latest properties surround a 14th century castle with vineyards on the same limestone plateau as Saint Emilion next door. Winemaker Henry Laithwaite crafted this wine, gently pressing the Cabernet to gain a little colour while using the saignée method for the Merlot. This crisp rosé is delicious solo and very versatile with food.
