What is Bordeaux Clairet? It is a light red wine, darker than a Rosé and lighter than your typical red table wine. It is made in roughly the same way a Rosé may be made, only the juice stays on the skins longer, which produces red wine aromas, more pronounced flavors, as well as its happy-go-lucky color. It is made in the style of the wines that were shipped from Bordeaux to England in the middle ages. Bordeaux Clairet has been enjoyed by the English since the time of Eleanor of Acquitaine's marriage to Henry Plantagenet (King Henry II) in 1154. In fact, these wines were the inspiration of the English word Claret (say clare-ETT), still in use today, to describe the much darker red wines from Bordeaux. We first tracked down Château Armurey’s Clairet with the 2012 vintage. Its easy-going nature and inexpensive price tag has made it a customer/staff favorite ever since.
