Vintage Claret 2020
Unbelievably, we are just six weeks away from 2023 - time flies! Over two decades on from the millennium, and already 12 years on from the mighty Bordeaux vintage of 2010. I am amazed to realise that even 2020 is now very much a blast from the past with its harvests being enjoyed in abundance. 2020 was a lovely vintage in Bordeaux and one that produced wonderfully forward drinking styles, especially from the merlot dominated right bank appellations such as Saint-Émilion.
Our Vintage Claret is selected and blended for us by Jonathan Maltus whose top wine, Le Dôme, won 100-point Parker score. Jonathan has been a friend of FromVineyardsDirect for many years and, we were delighted to welcome him to our recent tasting at the Polish Club in South Kensington. His 2020 was of course on show and was undisputedly the star of my tasting table. Tasted alongside some fabulous wines from some stellar vintages, everyone was absolutely amazed at the value the 2020 offered, with several guests purchasing multiple cases on the night. We have therefore decided alongside our regular great price of £12.95 to offer a multi case discount for you to stock up this Christmas and New Year.
