Chateau Amour, Medoc Cru Bourgeois, Bordeaux
£18.95

Bordeaux is perhaps one of the most famous of all wines and has been exporting since the Middle Ages. In England it became known as Claret, adapted from the French word clairet referring to the pale red colour of the Bordeaux wines exported until the 18th century. The Medoc district, north of the fabled Haut Medoc area and lying alongside the River Gironde, makes traditional, good value for money claret.  Chateau Amour was elevated to Cru Bourgeois status in 2012. A family owned estate run by Corinne Leveilley Dadda and Georges Dadda, who took over the management of the Château in 2006, determined to produce red wines aimed at excellence in the purest respect of the Médoc tradition. 

A wine of great refinement and elegance, generous blackberry fruits and a smooth texture from wood ageing give this wine its richness and open character.
