Selected by JM Cazes.
In the 11th and 12th centuries, the Bordeaux region was marked
by the English presence. At the same time, the Benedictine monks decorated the Saint-Emilion monolithic church with sculptures influenced by the Celtic culture.
This mixing of Anglo-saxon and Celtic culture has thus shaped our region. This is also reflected in the historical name of our estate: La Claymore. English-sounding, this name was written Claimh Mhor in Celtic, and referred to the broad sword of the Scottish Highlanders, Celtic warriors who are supposed to have fought with the English Army in Aquitaine.

Impressive perfume of violets, plum and cherry, with the floral aspect
continuing on to the soft milk chocolate palate which is lifted by refreshing acidity.
