We are delighted to introduce our new Vintage Claret from the great 2015 vintage which has been expertly selected and blended for us by Jonathan Maltus. This exceptional drinking Claret will only be produced in the best vintage years when Jonathan and we are satisfied that the wine is of the very highest quality - 2015 meets our rigorous specification. A fine Merlot based Claret that is already drinkable and has a good 5 years ahead of it.


Our Tasting Notes

Deep crimson with a bouquet of rich berry fruits - a Jonathan Maltus hallmark. Remarkably approachable already with its high Merlot content. Good concentration and a long finish - exactly what we look for in high quality everyday drinking Claret - it has it all.

"The 2015 Vintage Claret is From Vineyards Direct’s new house Claret and will only ever be produced in fine vintages. As you well know, 2015 was a spectacular vintage in Bordeaux and this is a little belter. 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 — it’s full of ripe, juicy, bramble fruit and boasts a wonderful softness thanks to its luscious Merlot-dominant fruit." - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator

"From a very good vintage for Bordeaux, this Merlot-dominated blend is bright and perky, the bold and juicy fruit to the fore in a buoyant, youthful style. In the mouth, more of the same with rounded Merlot softness driving the picture, fairly straightforward stuff, but good balance and nicely quaffable stuff." - Tom Cannavan,
