Red | Bordeaux Classics

Samuel Johnson commented “He who aspires to be a serious wine drinker must drink claret.” And we can only agree. Fashions come and go but Red Bordeaux remains a mainstay of our list. We have tasted through our portfolio to select a large handful that delivers fantastic quality at various price points, from both banks of the Gironde. The wines are a testament to the nuanced complexity achieved by blending. The thick skinned, later ripening Cabernet thrives on the left bank and delivers concentrated dark fruits, graphite precision and sleek, firm tannins. On the right bank, in Pomerol and St Emilion, Merlot reigns supreme with its ripe plummy fruit, softer tannins and luscious silky texture.
