Word of the Day: Claret

Illustration for article titled Word of the Day: i Claret/i

Good evening and welcome to Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, bar holidays, unless there's a holiday special...


Today's word is:




  • a red wine from Bordeaux, or wine of a similar character made elsewhere.
  • a deep purplish-red color.

ORIGIN: late Middle English (originally denoting a light red or yellowish wine, as distinct from a red or white): from Old French (vin) claret and medieval Latin claratum (vinum) 'clarified (wine),' from Latin clarus 'clear.'
