Chateau Villotte Bordeaux 2018 
 

£11.60

ABV 12.5% 75cl

“Mr. Galloway’s Claret” (aka Chateau Villotte 2018), Shortly after we opened RL a gentleman enquired after “Claret”. He was offered a beautiful Bordeaux at 14% ABV; “that’s not Claret. I would be in my cups 1/2 way down the second bottle. Get me Claret (12-13% ABV)..” We did. With his permission, and in his honour this is “Mr. Galloway’s claret”. It is a blend of 3 varietals which are the Cabernet franc, the Cabernet-Sauvignon and the Merlot. In the mouth this red wine is a powerful with a nice balance between acidity and tannins. Sadly, Iain Galloway passed away in 2021 but not before turning up, in his 80’s, in his new Maserati Quattroporte! He will be greatly missed for his wit, independence of mind and intellect.
