Château Thieuley, Bordeaux Clairet 2021

Rose Wine from France - Bordeaux
5.000000000 star rating 3 Reviews
This traditional Bordeaux rosé – actually closer in colour to a red wine – fascinated our Wine Champions panel of tasters, who were won over by its generous aromas of bramble fruits and wild strawberries and good structure. A great food wine, and a rosé for red-wine drinkers!

A darker, autumnal, traditional Bordeaux rosé for red wine fans. From La Sauve Majeure in the Gironde, Chateau Thieuley’s merlot-forward dark pink rosé (‘clairet’ formerly referred to a light red Bordeaux wine) is a delightful, lip-smacking end-of-summer swig. With fine-grained tannins and delectable flavours such as red berry fruits and a soupçon of liquorice, you might believe you’re drinking a glass of red wine if you close your eyes. There’s a lot of uncomplicated pleasure here. A great food style, it’s the perfect versatile bottle to drink with fish, salads or a vegetable tagine. An end-of-season barbecue is calling.

Great value buy: A seductively deep-coloured rosé to ease your way into autumn. Perfect for a late summer barbecue.

Light cherry red. Pretty, wild-strawberry aroma and a touch of cherry. Juicy and like a substantial rosé though the tannins are surprisingly soft. For those who don't want their rosés too crisp. A little...
Light cherry red. Pretty, wild-strawberry aroma and a touch of cherry. Juicy and like a substantial rosé though the tannins are surprisingly soft. For those who don't want their rosés too crisp. A little bit too gentle for my taste but it has persistence, and would probably be versatile at the table. 16/20

Intense, round, deep-coloured rosé. Freshness and drive serve as perfect counterpoint to the flavour intensity. This is a great expression (and reminder) of this traditional style, which combines depth with drinkability. Crunchy red apple, pink peach, grapefruit and blood orange are supported by a subtle tannic grip. So delicious and inviting. 89/100
