Clairet is the original, dark-hued, Bordeaux rosé. Almost red. Here, we 'roc' the boat to give this pink style a new lease of life. And it's truly delicious. Top Merlot grapes, taken off skins early, it's cram full of cherry and cassis appeal.
ROC Clairet is part of our Gentle Riot – pioneering wines challenging the norm and sustainably produced. Why? To make a wine that's kinder to the planet and tastes terrific. Clairet is Bordeaux’s unique version of a very deep rosé. Almost red, but one that is so deliciously fruit filled and rounded at the edges that you want to chill it! It’s a style that has almost disappeared. Chai winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua took all-Merlot grapes from a vineyard with sustainability at its core. It lies just across the river from St-Émilion, on the finest, pure-limestone soils. What colour! Deep cherry and cassis, rounder and less citrusy than normal pinks, yet totally refreshing. A winner with both red and rosé drinkers solo or try with griddled salmon.
"This dark-hued rosé boasts oodles of tantalising aromas of cherry and blackcurrant. Invigorating"
