From another great vintage for Bordeaux, this is a double Gold medal claret from a family domaine. Made from mostly Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, Château du Prieur is a tasty everyday claret with lots of appealing ripe fruit.

Situated five miles from the famous medieval town of Saint Emilion, Château du Prieur is a 55 hectare estate owned by the Merit family. The domaine was founded by Emmanuel Merit and is now run by his grandson Didier with the help of his great grandson Arnaud. The property’s vineyards are composed of clay and limestone, a combination Merlot loves, with a favourable southern exposure that ensures luscious ripeness and concentration in the grapes. Didier and Arnaud produce a lush, fruit forward blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc intended for immediate enjoyment. Elegant, yet supple and fruity, this classic wine is an ideal partner for roast chicken and richly flavoured casseroles. For now – let the wine breathe beforehand.
