For the money, an outstanding value claret that sends some of the famed / named houses to Coventry.
Pantone 209 with good legs in the glass, warm nose, wonderful dry mouthfeel, silky firm tannins, lovely aftertaste. Always a pleasure to imbibe a Chaignes creation.
A deliciously refreshing Clairet from the house of Ballan-Larquette.
Paler in colour than previous vintages this is a taste of a good Summer, taste of cherries and aroma of the garden / cut grass.
We served this at The McConkey Lunch to celebrate Dad’s Birthday.
Well made, dark cherries, lovely tannin structure with a long dry finish.
From Laura’s wine club.
