Cadet du Château La Claymore
A bright cherry red colour with deep purple highlights. On the nose the wine is fruity with notes of cherries (bigarreau) and wild strawberries, marked by spicy notes of white pepper. The palate is smooth and well-balanced, delicately enhanced by flavours of fresh sloe, blackberry and toffee.
- Gold Lyon 2020
Deep purple colour. Woody, fruity nose with some black fruits and undergrowth notes. A pleasant freshness in the mouth that balances well some silky tannins. A wine with great finesse, full of elegance and purity.

Château La Claymore produces a second wine named CADET, a wine with young aromas that will seduce you with its elegance
All of our plots are cultivated with the respect for environment and full expression of the terroir: low level of treatment, frequent tillage, systematic leaf-thinning, green harvesting, sorting table.
The “younger brother” of Château la Claymore is made from the young vines of the estate under 12 years, planted at the foot of the hillside on medium and heavy clay soils, and giving wines with palpable fruity notes (red berries), supple on the palate with a fresh finish..
Two grape varieties: MERLOT mostly, CABERNET FRANC
Wine making process is made without the use of SO2, under temperature control during fermentation and maceration. Grape must tasted and selected for CADET, after the running off and pressing, ages partly in tanks (80%) and partly under alternative oak (staves).
Bottled after 18 months’ ageing, CADET is available in 75cl Bordeaux bottles.
