The nose is gorgeously rich and classical with aromas of cassis, red cherry, leather, cedar, vanilla and cigar box. The palate is soft, and exquisitely supple, leading to a mature spice laden finish that oozes sheer class. The classic combination of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon provides classy redcurrant fruits, with good weight and intensity. This wine is drinking really well now and doesn’t possess that tannic backbone that some vintages of Ch. Clarke display. Decant carefully and serve after 30 minutes aeration.

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)
£119.85Buy 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!
Waddesdon Pauillac 2015 by Chateau Mouton Rothschild
£32.50Buy After an hour in a decanter our Waddesdon Pauillac awakens from its slumber to reveal a nose of cassis, charred vanilla, cedar, black cherry and cedar. There's evidence of the ripeness this vintage possesses with a plump fruit-forward entry to the palate which is tapered by fine tannins and well balanced acidity. It's clearly Pauillac and true to the 'house' style - yet it's accessible and attractive now and doesn't require a decade patiently waiting in the cellar. Decant for an hour and enjoy this Pauillac with a roast beef.
