Description

’58 Guineas’ was the reported price Sir Robert Walpole (First Lord of the Treasury) paid in 1713, to smuggle twenty hogsheads of claret into Britain, where it was highly prized by London’s fashionable wealthy elite. Unoaked, 58 Guineas offers a quintessential claret; full, dark fruit on the nose with a heavy helping of depth on the palate.

Easy to enjoy on its own thanks to its ripe yet present structure, this is proper Bordeaux that pairs well with a wide range of dishes.
