Vintage Bordeux Wine & Original Newspaper

 
Personalised & Despatched within 72 Hours
Product Description
This special 'cuvee', produced only in years with highly favourable weather conditions, is made from grapes harvested in the oldest part of the vineyard, where the vines are on average 60 years old; these old vines only produce very low yields of highly flavoured garpes. A long maceration followed by 18months in only new oak barriques results in a classic old-fashioned claret. Deeply coloured with a complex bouquet and rich, long finish. 

All papers sent will be a genuine original & complete newspaper (not a copy) from the date you select. Each newspaper comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. 

Each gift box comes with a gift card, which you can personalise with the name of the recipient and a personal message.
