The Doublet family owns three properties in Bordeaux in different subregions. Each property is kept as a separate entity and retains its historic name while making wine in the classic style of the region. This preserves the quality and unique character of each terroir, allowing the individual character of each winery to shine through. This thoughtful approach is expressed clearly in the Vignol Clairet, a unique take on classic Bordeaux made only from free run juice. Fresh blackberry and plum fruit leads the way, while the slightest kiss of tannin on the finish reminds you it’s a proper Clairet. Serve it with a slight chill!
