If you’ve ever thought clarets were a bit stand offish, this seductive claret will convert you. Ripe, velvety and brimful of plum and cassis, it’s a very moreish Bordeaux from the family property of Ludovic Roussillon and a ripe vintage.
Bordeaux is where our whole wine merchant story began, five decades ago. As you would expect we’ve plenty of friends in the region, not least the superb viticulturalist Ludovic Roussillon. His Château Le Coin lies just across the river from our exclusive cellar and winemaking studio, Le Chai au Quai. The soils on Ludovic’s Entre Deux Mers estate are rich in limestone and quick draining, which concentrates the rich flavours of the grapes. Ludovic is great to work with and very generous – he even lets our own Bordeaux specialist Jean-Marc Sauboua cherry pick the best vats and supervise the finishing of the wine. Made mostly from prime Merlot, this classy Bordeaux, with many Golds to its name, is perfect with roast shoulder of lamb or venison.
"Excellent. A very accommodating red"
