The L&S buyers source their bargain of an own-label Bordeaux from a small estate new Gensac in Entre-deux-Mers. It's soft and supple, with just the right amount of gentle oak char to support its fruit flavours - juicy blue plums and black berries. There's a fresh, herbal note running alongside the bright acidity and tannic bite, and a leathery hint of maturity creeping in on the finish. Decanter Magazine (Mar 2021)

*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.

2016 was a super vintage here - and we are delighted with this new release of our hugely popular, own-label Claret. As ever this comes from a fabulous small estate near the village of Gensac in the Entre-Deux-Mers. Just a moment in oak - this top value Bordeaux is loaded with lovely plummy red fruit - some cigar box spices and just the right amount of grip and some juicy acidity. Bright and hugely satisfying Bordeaux for an unbelievably good price!L&S (May 2020)

Meet your house claret for the winter. “That’s good!” was my response when I reached this in a tasting line-up. And it is – a single-estate claret from the Entre-Deux-Mers, from a cracking vintage (and it shows) with a cedary nose and a soft nap of fruit.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Nov 2020)
