Classic Bordeaux with blackcurrant and cedarwood
Classic Claret! Expertly made by top oenologist and all-round excellent chap Marc Lurton using organically and sustainably grown Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Marc then ages his wine in French and American oak barrels which gives smooth tannins and notes of vanilla. These complement the red plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours perfectly.
Medium-bodied with touches of smoke and cedarwood and a good long-lasting flavour, this wine shows that Bordeaux is back and producing great wines without breaking the bank… thank goodness!

Food and Wine Pairing
Bordeaux wines are a superb match with steaks and lamb dishes. Give yourself and the family a treat with a Sunday roast of our rack or boned leg of lamb or with a mouth-watering ribeye steak with chunky chips cooked in goose fat. Delicious!
About the Producer
The fortified medieval manor of Château Reynier dates back to the fifteenth century and is located just across from Saint-Émilion in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux between the two great rivers of the Dordogne and Garonne.
In the more than capable hands of Marc Lurton, his wife Agnès and recent recruit his lovely daughter Pauline, this estate has been producing top quality Bordeaux using both modern and traditional techniques to produce characterful wines that showcase the two classic Bordeaux grapes.
Split 50/50, the Merlot gives the red fruits and a certain plush character whilst the Cabernet Sauvignon gives some gentle tannins for structure with blackcurrant fruit elements. Aged for 12 months in new French and American oak barrels gives a smooth feel with toast and cedar smoke to add even greater complexity yet keeping the wine generous in fruit and a very tasty drop to sip on its own or match with meats and cheeses.
