Tasting Notes:

The wine from Château Clarke is a true reflection of the land that made it: concentrated and distinguished. It allies power with aromatic complexity, and has great potential for ageing. Very ripe fruit and a pleasant and unobtrusive cedar wood, vanilla, licorice, cocoa and toasted almonds. Straightforward and tasty followed by a rich taste, full-bodied and balanced. Leaves a fruity aftertaste.

The origins of the Château Clarke estate date back to the 12th century when the Cistercian monks of the Vertheuil Abbey planted the first vines. Much more recently, the knight Tobie Clarke purchased the land that would permanently bear his name in 1818. Then, after being repeatedly handed down and finally sold, the property was bought in 1973 by the Baron Edmond de Rothschild.

The vines are planted on clay-limestone hilltops that enable the Merlot grape to express itself at its best. And ever since the first vintage year at Château Clarke, bottled in 1978, the quality of the wines has never ceased to improve.
