Bordeaux Clairet ( Rosé), Chateau de Fontenille 2018

£75.00

 Cabernet Franc

Clairet is only made in Bordeaux and rarely found outside the region itself and this award winning wine is regarded as one of the best.  Total production of less than 6,000 bottles,  this wine is basically  “a Rosé with attitude”. We are constantly amazed that there is so little Clairet imported into the UK –  when did you last see it on sale anywhere?

It is one of those wines that you just have try — after all this is the light red wine that the  English began drinking over 900 years ago which they nicknamed “claret”.  Deep blush and incredibly luminous, fragrant and floral.  A massive strawberry and raspberry punch that lingers forever, this wine is well structured and very drinkable. The extra long 2-3 days maceration, ageing on fine lees and the windy micro-climate of Fontenille, make this a blockbuster example of “rosé wine” with real depth and character.
The perfect match for all ethnic foods and barbecues but also great on its own served cold on the terrace.
Welcome home to the original claret!
