Vinum clarum

Clairet

Clairet is a wine that is dark pink in style, and may be described as a full bodied and deep coloured type of rosé. It is considered a specialty of the Bordeaux region and is thought to have originated in Quinsac in Premieres Côtes de Bordeaux.

Similar to the light wine of the Middle Ages that was exported to England, also called "vinum clarum" and "vin clar" or "bin clar", the name is the source of the English term "claret".

The wine is bottled under the AOC of Bordeaux clairet.
