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.

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (1)
It has a wonderfully rich nose with aromas of soft red berry fruit. It's full bodied and very fresh, with good structure and soft tannins and everything in balance - merlot at its best in this great vintage. I recommend opening the bottle an hour or so before drinking to allow its full flavour to open up.

Vintage Claret - always fantastic and outstanding VFM.

"Sourced from Saint-Émilion and neighbouring appellations, this is made by Johnathan Maltus, perhaps best known for his super Right Bank 'garage wine', 'Le Dôme'. This Merlot-dominated blend has smooth, concentrated aroma of plums and blackcurrant, an elegant little hint of Sandalwood spice in the background. It's a big, caressing mouthful of luscious Merlot on the palate, with very sweet and soft tannins, but a little liquorice twist of bittersweetness from the acid, oak and tannin does give a pert, fresh finish too. With 14.5% alcohol it is ripe and full, a bit of a contrast to the Petite Sirène, but really rather delicious."
Tom Cannavan, WINE-PAGES.COM
"Made by Jonathan Maltus he of Le Dôme and Château Teyssier, and famously the first Englishman to get a perfect 100/100 score from Robert Parker its full of ripe, juicy, bramble fruit and boasts a wonderful softness thanks to its luscious Merlot-dominant fruit."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator (previous vintage)
