Luxury Claret Set, Wickhams Wine
Got Dad to thank for your excellent taste in wine? This Luxury Claret Set from south Devon’s Wickhams Wine is a fantastic gift for a connoisseur.
Wickhams’ founder Dan Farrell-Wright has chosen two of his all-time favourite classic full-bodied reds for this bespoke gift set which is packaged in a clasped wooden presentation case. The first pick is Lalande de Pomerol, a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc which results in a good balance of black fruits, toasty notes and sweet spice. The second is Montagne-Saint-Émilion, a classic French red with a deep ruby colour and soft nose of cherry, cassis and spice from oak aging.
