Winemaker Notes

Beautiful, clear garnet color with a fruity nose (blackberry, blackcurrant, plums). The mouth is full-bodied with very fine but noticeable tannins. A well-balanced wine between tannic power, unctuousness, fresh finish.

Wine Enthusiast

This fruity, juicy wine offers some well-structured tannins. Aged in wood for 18 months, it is ripe, concentrated and full of black-currant and blueberry flavors.

Another gem in the vintage is the 2016 Château La Claymore, which is made with consulting advice from Stephane Toutoundji and is 75% Merlot, 15% Malbec, and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 25% new French oak. It has a pure, precise, focused texture as well as some iron-laced blueberry, plum, graphite, violet, and subtle oak aromas and flavors. Showing the more pretty, elegant side of the vintage, yet with terrific fruit, drink it over the coming 10-12 years.

Chateau La Claymore, France
Chateau La Claymore Barrel Room of La Claymore Winery Image

In the 11th and 12th centuries, the Bordeaux region was marked by the English presence. At the same time, the Benedictine monks decorated the Saint-Emilion monolithic church with sculptures influenced by the Celtic culture. This mixing of Anglo-saxon and Celtic culture has thus shaped our region. This is also reflected in the historical name of our estate: La Claymore. English sounding, this name was written Claimh Mhor in Celtic, and referred to the broad sword of the Scottish Highlanders, Celtic warriors who are supposed to have fought with the English Army in Aquitaine.

Château la Claymore is a thirty-three hectare estate owned by the Dubard family. Located in Lussac-Saint-Émilion, one of the best Saint-Émilion satellite areas, the Chateau makes very good value Merlot-led wines.

In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
