It is hardly an exaggeration that Downton Abbey viewers on this side of the pond are in the midst of the world’s worst hiatus. But a new Downton Abbey Bordeaux wine collection will provide fans with a taste of the Crawley family as we anxiously await season four’s return this January.

Not only has winemaker Jean-Marc Dulong of Grands Vins de Bordeaux created a blend to commemorate Downton Abbey, he’s crafted two (cue a Maggie Smith double take). Both the Blanc white wine and the Claret red wine are made using the same Bordeaux resources and traditions that would have served the Downton Era. French Bordeaux was the wine of choice for nobility in Edwardian England, so you can be sure Thomas would have snatched a bottle.

With over 130 years of winemaking experience, family-owned Grands Vins de Bordeux has a five-generation legacy that Lord Grantham would envy. Just what will he do about the estate? Will Mary ever find love again? How the heck is that dog still alive? Mull it all over with some Downton Abbey Wine. Available now for $14.99 per bottle, the only thing missing is Mr. Carson to pour it for you.
