Bordeaux has been exporting wine to Britain since the 12th-century marriage of Henry Plantagenet of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine. At that time, most of the wine that reached England was a light-red style from Graves called clairet hence the British term ‘claret’ for all Bordeaux wines.<>
Now, nearly 900 years later, Bordeaux remains the world’s largest and most important fine wine region
Château Luby is one of our most popular clarets and this is the fifth vintage (and arguably the best) we’ve offered
It’s a small estate in the Entre-deux-Mers which has been in the same family for five generations and is today looked after by Christophe Lacoste
Tasting note:Opening with classic claret aromas of cassis and cigar box. Its smooth, blackcurrant fruit palate is long and focused with a fresh fruit finish and gentle hints of spice. Soft and supple, it is already drinking well and would be delicious with game pie, a sausage casserole or a selection of cheeses.
