FULL SUBSCRIPTION: The Clubhouse Red (Monthly – 6) with £72pa sent to YOUR club
£65.00 / month
We have added this new red wine to our squad as it is the Cuisset’s most popular red and is the result of Julien Cuisset’s expert blending of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. We are yet to meet a red wine lover who has not thought this red is worryingly drinkable! A balanced and fruity nose with hints of strawberries, blackberries and wild fruits. The palate displays soft fruity aromas and silky tannins and it has a long elegant finish, as is the norm for Cuisset wines. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes compliment the Merlot base to result in wonderful flavours in your mouth. Serve whilst the barbecue is being fired up and with the resultant meat feast as well as with cheese and, of course, before, during or after watching your favourite rugby team.

Close to its more famous neighbour Bordeaux, the Bergerac region (also known as Périgord and Dordogne) is not well represented in the UK nowadays and we think that needs changing. The vines of the Cuisset family are centred around the small village of Monestier where vines have been planted since the Middle Ages (1053). Guy Cuisset and his sons, Gabriel and Julien, have helped to turn the whole estate over to organic production and are now adopting new modern strategies in the vineyards and cellar which included ditching the reliance on the old AOC Bergerac rules (dating from the 1950s) as the brothers deemed these unsuitable for today’s climate, market and organic vine growing opportunities and the wines they are now producing are high quality. There is further information on these new techniques here. This is a delicious and worryingly drinkable crisp, citrussy white wine.
To make it easy for you and us and to maximise the benefits for your club you can take out a monthly subscription for a case of 6 bottles of wine (which we think most of us buy from the supermarket each month anyway if you count it up…..). You can choose from red, white, rose or a mixed subscription where you will receive one case of each in rotation. Our subscriptions run for 18 months and all subscribers are able to buy the personalised home rugby wine rack at the discounted price of £99 in their choice of club or country colours.

Best served before, during or after watching any rugby, and also with meat, barbecues and cheese.
