This 2016 is a great new arrival for us. 'Picture-perfect' Château du Taillan, run by the 5 Cruse sisters has made a beautiful wine in 2016 with a sophisticated feel of suave tannins and a great weight of gently dark fruit. There is a clean-lined, sleek black-fruited edge that dominates but its punctuated with fresh, delicate green herb notes and lovely cedar wood and cracked pepper too. Delicious, satisfying and very 'grown-up' Bordeaux at this price. This is a wine that will satisfy Bordeaux purists as well as impress new explorers of this region. L&S (Nov 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Everyday CLARET

Well, OK, not every day but you know what we mean. Every wine rack needs some good honest claret which didn't cost the earth, isn't too grand to drink with pizza or mid-week leftovers, but looks smart enough to be pulled out when high-minded friends pop over, and gives the recycle box an air of sophistication on bin day. Here's a fine selection from all four corners of Bordeaux.
