Chateau La Claymore Lussac Saint Emilion 2007.
Grape Variety-Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon.
Clear, deep purple colour. Soft, subtle red fruit aromas with a touch of tobacco. Very easy on the palate. Diluted red fruit and a snippet of spice with low acidity. Mid length and very little tannin.
Oooooooooo. This wine is easy. If you’ve never drank red wine before and wanted to start then this is a no brainer. It’s a good starter wine. It doesn’t have the mouth fill that you’d expect from a Merlot, Cabernet blend but it keeps it nice and easy. The wine isn’t a keeper by any stretch. I think it’s reached its peak. On saying that, it’s organic, uncomplicated and subtle. Good wine.
Happily drink on its own or with pork or cold meat dishes.
