Château Clarke 2011 double magnum (3L), A.C Listrac Médoc
Chateau Clarke, an estate on the left bank of the Gironde estuary, was acquired by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1973, and Michel Rolland was appointed consultant in 1999. It’s advised that Ch. Clarke spends five years in the bottle before drinking, as the tannins often require cellaring to soften. This beautiful double magnum has been resting in our cellar for close to seven years, so there’s no guilt in popping it this Christmas.

The classic combination of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon provides redcurrant fruits with good weight and intensity. After an hour of oxygen exposure there’s notes of mocha, cigar box, blackberry, tobacco and forest floor. There’s plenty of rich red fruit and oak derived spice on the palate with an earthy finish. Drink now or cellar for up to a decade. This wine is delivered in an original wooden branded case

Le Merle Blanc de Château Clarke 2018 (New Release), A.C. Bordeaux
£30.00Buy Chateau Clarke enjoyed a warm dry summer in 2018, with the harvest being completed in perfect conditions; resulting in a fantastic vintage. Le Merle Blanc 2018 possesses a shimmering bright pale yellow colour with a complex and aromatic bouquet. It kicks off with a touch of citrus peel and jasmine then leads to lemongrass and slightly richer creamier notes from the judicious oak interaction. The palate is clean and expressive with freshness and tension balanced by richness of fruit and a delicate toasty savoury note. This is very clever winemaking that brings together all the qualities you expect in a fine dry white wine. No need to cellar, serve this summer with shellfish and sunshine.
Château Clarke 2006, A.C. Listrac-Medoc (Three Bottle Case)

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!
