Will Lyons knows good Bordeaux when it’s in his glass. Such that when standing up a trio great-value reds for Burns Night in the Sunday Times last weekend, he was clearly compelled to highlight our 2020 Vintage Claret made by our 100-Parker-Point-winning, winemaking friend John Malthus. And if £12.95 for a bottle of his ‘plush’ and ‘vibrant blackcurrant’ Right Bank flavours wasn’t attractive enough (as the newspaper offered), imagine it for... £10.95.

So it is today, FromVineyardsDirect.

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.

"This classic Saint-Émilion from the English producer Jonathan Maltus has vibrant notes of blackcurrants and a dry finish."
Will Lyons, Sunday Times
"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)
