Bordeaux Clairet AOC

6,15 € / per bottle

The Château Turcaud Bordeaux Clairet AOC is a typical Bordeaux wine. It is enjoyed like a rosé, very fresh. This wine reveals a powerful bouquet, on the spices and the red fruits, with a dominant of raspberries. The 2015 vintage won the gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris 2016.

Appellation

Bordeaux Clairet AOC

Vintage

2018

Grapes and vinification

50% cabernet franc, 50% merlot. A half-way house between a red and a rosé produced only in Bordeaux, Clairet is a descendent of the first wine ever produced in the region. Winemaking: left on the skins for about 72 hours in our pneumatic winepresses.

Colour

More deeply coloured than the rosé and more reminiscent of redcurrant or raspberry.

Nose

Powerful spice and red fruit (mainly raspberry) bouquet.

Palate

Slightly more tannic structure than the rosé with greater body and vinosity. More refreshing than the red wine particularly in summer.

Tasting advice

It is best enjoyed chilled within two years of the vintage with brightly-coloured starters, cold meats, salads, and exotic or spicy dishes such as tajines, couscous, and Mediterranean food. Bordeaux Clairet is also a treat with grilled meat, tapas, and cocktail nibbles. It is ideal with picnics and outdoor meals, and a pleasure all year long.
