£119.85 £89.85

Chateau Clarke was acquired by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1973 and is situated in the appellation of Listrac Medoc. The vineyard is planted with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, which were replanted soon after Baron Edmond acquired the Chateau. Three wines are produced at the estate, the top cuvee Chateau Clarke, often needs more than five years bottle age to show its full potential.

Tasting notes

Rustic, earthy, structured and complex. Let’s make no mistake about it, this vintage is built in a traditional style. If you like sweet edged new world fruit with no structure then this isn’t for you. Clarke 2006 is broad and classical with juicy tannins and bags of earthy tertiary complexity. There’s cedar, forest floor, iron filings, black cherry and cigar box on the nose with a dense full bodied palate that is crying out for a hearty dish. Decant for thirty minutes and enjoy with beef and mushroom pie!
