The Château Turcaud Bordeaux Clairet AOC is a typical Bordeaux wine. It is enjoyed like a rosé, very fresh. This wine reveals a powerful bouquet, on the spices and the red fruits, with a dominant of raspberries. The 2015 vintage won the gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris 2016.

|Tasting advice||It is best enjoyed chilled within two years of the vintage with brightly-coloured starters, cold meats, salads, and exotic or spicy dishes such as tajines, couscous, and Mediterranean food. Bordeaux Clairet is also a treat with grilled meat, tapas, and cocktail nibbles. It is ideal with picnics and outdoor meals, and a pleasure all year long.|
