Modest ‘house’ clarets go well with eggs. This one is perfect for a fry-up brunch.
…terrific value for money.
‘Claret’, is a catch-all term for red Bordeaux, but its literal translation means ‘clear’ because lighter styles of red Bordeaux were historically almost rosé in colour. This lovely claret from Tanners is definitely a red wine but it is tender and juicy, too, unlike many of the blockbuster styles we see today. Drink it with the hearty Beef curry!
