We say…..Outstanding red from renowned region!  Perfect for drinking now but will only get better with age.

Clos de la Cure Saint Émilion Grand Cru is a classy example of good value quality wine from the Saint Émilion region of Bordeaux.   Clos de la Cure is a beautiful walled 6 hectare vineyard situated near the old church of St. Christophe-des-Bardes, on the Saint Émilion plateau. This estate and Château Milon are owned by Alexia and Pierre Bouyer and the estate represents more than seven generations of viticultural heritage.

The domaine works a vineyard of high viticultural quality and treats it with all the respect due to a Grand Cru: an ecological approach to the running of the estate, carefully controlled yields and a vinification and aging process that brings out the best of the terroir.  The vineyard has clay topsoil over limestone sub-soil and the vines are 25-30 years old.

The grapes are harvested both by hand and machine and cold soaking pre-fermentation. This is followed by in-tank vinification with punching down and maceration in temperature controlled tanks 3-4 weeks post-fermentation.  The wine is then maturated in new barrels for 12-15 months.  The production process results in wines of high quality, marked by the fullness of ripe Merlot with intense red fruit aromas underpinned by delicate tannins.

Clos de la Cure Saint Émilion Grand Cru has been marked “outstanding” by many critics and is going to get better and better with age, so if you are looking for something to lie down for a few years, Clos de la Cure is a great choice.  The cellar potential is between 10 and 15 years.  This lovely red wine has a full ripe lingering flavour and it goes very well with game, beef and strong cheeses.  Our Magnum, which is the equivalent of 2 standard sized wine bottles, comes beautifully packaged and makes a very special gift for red wine lovers.

All our magnums and jeroboams come securely packaged in a beautiful presentation tube and are supplied with a gift tag. The even bigger bottles are packaged in sturdy wooden boxes and are also supplied with a gift tag. If you are ordering a big bottle as a gift and would like it delivered directly to the recipient, please fill in the information below before adding to basket and we will personally hand write the gift tag for you. You will be given the opportunity to add a separate delivery address at the checkout stage. You can make multiple gift purchases in one order by following this procedure for each product purchase.
