Clarendelle Bordeaux Rouge
Min. Quantity: 1
The Clarendelle Bordeaux Rouge is a blend of three traditional Bordeaux grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Making the most of the complementary qualities of each variety, oenologists from Domaine Clarence Dillon and the team from Clarence Dillon Wines have produced very well-balanced wine. The Clarendelle Bordeaux Rouge has a noticeable, but moderate acidity as well as crunchy ripe red fruit flavours, along with hints of spice and liquorice. The tannin is round, smooth, and velvety. The aftertaste is rich and concentrated. Superb with shepherds pie, char grilled steak or Asian style pork dishes.
Expert Reviews & Awards
"Classic merlot-driven aromas of smoked plums, smoked meats and cigar stub; just medium-full bodied and soft textured, with fine, silky tannins. Mellow; moderate length; soft finish. A lovely glass of red to enjoy right now."

Made from 83% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc.
Clarendelle, Inspired by Haut-Brion, is a family of premium Bordeaux wines - the brainchild of Prince Robert of Luxembourg, named in honour of his great grandfather, Mr Clarence Dillon. Through the creation of Clarendelle, Clarence Dillon Wines and Domaine Clarence Dillon wish to shed a new light on the tremendous potential and savoir faire of this region, that have made it a benchmark for the entire world. With this outstanding terroir, passionate and qualified men and women, and expertise handed down over centuries, all the necessary ingredients were there for the creation of a top-end Bordeaux brand. It is in the pure tradition of the Domaine Clarence Dillon Estate wines that the oenologists at the family-owned company also elaborate Clarendelle, with the traditional Bordeaux varieties. Bringing out the finest characteristics of the vintage, skillful blending leads to high quality year after year. The red wines come primarily from the Saint Émilion, Haut-Médoc, and Pessac-Léognan regions (including the Domaine Clarence Dillon Estates). The white wines come mainly from the Graves (including Pessac-Léognan).
