Tasting notes

The 2015 vintage in Bordeaux was of great quality. Chateau Clarke, like many Chateaux, performed well in 2015 and this format will need some cellaring to show it’s best. The nose possesses a  inky black cherry, cigar box, pure cassis, chocolate and vanilla shavings. The palate is ripe and concentrated with a classic tannic structure and vibrant acidity.  This format will drink well until 2035.
