Closerie des Bories, Francs Cotes de Bordeaux AOC

EXCLUSIVE TO THE BRIGHTON WINE COMPANY

This is made at a beautiful Chateau in the Cotes de Francs in Bordeaux, Chateau Puygueraud. It's been in the Thienpont family since 1946 - the same family that is behind Chateau Pavie Macquin, Vieux-Chateau-Certan and perhaps most famous of all, Chateau Le Pin. All are regarded as some of the best Chateaux in Bordeaux.

The Closerie de Bories is one of our favourite wines from Puygueraud and also ridiculously good value. It's made from 100% Merlot and spends over 12 months aging in French oak before additional aging in bottle. It is an incredibly smooth, polished wine, with wonderfully silky tannins, a pure core of delicious Cassis fruit with a seam of milk chocolate running through it. The finish has a touch of pepper and is impressively long. Basically, this is top-class Claret for a fraction of the price you'd normally pay.

And it's exclusive to us. Other than a few restaurants in London we are the only retailers of this cracking wine but it's only produced in tiny amounts, so we have a limited amount of cases available in the run-up to Christmas.
