Tasting notes

The 2005 vintage in Bordeaux will go down in history for its superlative quality. Chateau Clarke, like many Chateaux, performed well in 2005 and this vintage is still youthful in many respects. Chateau Clarke 2005 possesses a rich nose of black cherry, iron filings, earthy spice, coffee, burnt vanilla, and cigar box. The palate is weighty and rich with a classic tannic structure and vibrant acidity. It is strongly advised that this vintage is served with a dish rich in protein, and that it has been decanted for at least three hours. Drink now to 2022.
