We have a long and very proud tradition in Bordeaux. We remain Bordeaux specialists to this day and use our vast network of contacts to bring you outstanding clarets like this great-value discovery, put together by our very own claret specialist.
Rewind 25 years and nearly every wine merchant offered a good, ordinary claret perfect for lunchtime sipping. Well, Comte des Clos is a revival of that style. Unpretentious and uncomplicated, with lots of appealing fruit. And all the better for it! Our Bordeaux buyer has taken full advantage of his vast network of Bordeaux contacts to put this together. He tasted cuvées from the length and breadth of the region, which enjoyed an exceptional vintage in 2018. Then using winemaking skills perfected at top estates in Bordeaux and Rioja, he blended this cracking little claret. It’s made mostly from Merlot, so it has soft plum and redcurrant flavours, a touch of oak and enough richness to go with all kinds of dishes. A modern, fruit rich claret.
"When you want good claret without opening your finest Bordeaux, reach for a glass of this"
Jean-Marc Sauboua Buyer for Bordeaux
