Bordeaux is one of the world's largest and most famous winemaking regions, producing wines that range from 'everyday drinking' to some of the most luxurious, exotic, and expensive on the planet!

This collection is a classic example of how good the 'everyday drinking' wines from a great Bordeaux vintage can be. Velvety, plummy merlot rich claret that won't break the bank. Critic James Suckling described Bordeaux's 2016 vintage as "exceptional", and with all its luscious, velvety fruit, this Gold winners are outstanding value.

Collection includes:

2 x Calvet Prestige Cuvée Bordeaux 2017 (France)

AWARDED 90/100 POINTS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2019

"It is attractively fruited and nicely lifted on the nose showing dark plum, cherry, toasted almond, thyme and warm spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is elegantly weighted and supple. It is fruit expressive and silky, well supported by fine-grained tannins, finishing long and delightfully dry. Well composed and balanced. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2019

A lovely ruby red colour the Prestige Cuvée has loads of plummy fruit with subtle notes of vanilla. Fleshy and well-balanced witha supple and delicate flavour. Delicious!
Calvet Prestige is modern in style and are a tasty reminder that Bordeaux isn't only about the glamourous big name Chateaux with equally big price tags.

2 x Château Franc Couplet Cuvée Privilege 2016 (France)

Awarded Gold Medal: Concours de Bordeaux 2017

Awarded Gold Medal: Gilbert Gaillard 2017

Awarded Silver Medal: Concours de Paris 2017

Dark ruby color. Red fruit aromas with plum and cherry jam and vanilla hints from the oak ageing. Well balanced, rich structure with refined tannins. A very good example of value for money Bordeaux.

Revel in the delightful, rich fruit and depth of this claret from a family estate in Entre-Deux-Mers. With a proud medal winning pedigree, Chateau Franc Couplet is a cuvée from the Entre Deux Mers and typifies the style for which this region is renowned. It displays good depth of colour with expressive ripe cassis and dark plum aromas. It's smooth, rounded and elegantly proportioned with just a subtle hint of spice - the epitome of modern claret.

2 x Château Les Sablonnets ‘Cuvee Clelian’ Bordeaux 2017 (France)

Awarded Gold Medal: Feminalise 2018

Château Les Sablonnets Cuvée Clélian offers a bright ruby colour with a red tints in the glass, delivering a fruity bouquet with a touch of vanilla aroma. It is a smooth full-bodied and well balanced wine with a supple and delicate character. A medium full bodied red Bordeaux with a good balance between ripe plummy fruit and berry flavours, with plenty of concentration and tannins that are fine-grained, smooth and supple. This is great quaffing claret!
